Keir Starmer tonight set out his response to the Prime Minister’s statement on coronavirus, demanding a ‘Plan B’ for the economy alongside new restrictions.

In a televised broadcast to the nation Keir Starmer said Labour support the new restrictions, adding: “I urge everyone to follow the new guidance and the rule of law.”

Keir Starmer said that while new restrictions “are now necessary, they were not inevitable.”

Adding that “We need a ‘Plan B’ for the economy. It makes no sense to bring in new restrictions at the same time as phasing out support for jobs and businesses.”
