Anneliese Dodds: Government hasn't put in enough effort to make workplaces safe

By Sam Sholli

Shadow Chancellor Anneliese Dodds has told LBC that the UK Government hasn't done enough to ensure "all workplaces are really safe".

The Labour MP made the remark while speaking to LBC's Shelagh Fogarty.

Mrs Dodds said: "I am concerned that we don't seem to have the kind of focus on this that there was during the first lockdown."

"I would say I've talked to many businesses who have worked incredibly hard to make sure that they're safe. I don't want to downplay that because it has been an enormous effort.

"But we really do need to make sure that's applying right across the economy. It's very important indeed."
