Hilary Benn - Member of Parliament for Leeds Central
Statement by Hilary Benn, MP for Leeds Central, on the Government’s decision to move Leeds into Tier 3 Covid restrictions:
This decision was both inevitable and necessary given the high rate of Covid cases in Leeds and the increasing pressures on the LGI and Jimmy’s, but I know it’s going to be really difficult for a lot of businesses including in the city centre. We all need to play our part in trying to reverse the rise in infections so that we can eventually come out of this, but it will depend on what we do. And while we play our part, the Government has to ensure that all the businesses affected get the support they need.
