Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on the Government’s lack of support for bus drivers, said:
“Our thoughts are with the families of all those brave drivers who have lost their lives on the front line of this crisis. This is an issue not just affecting London but public transport across the country.
“Our drivers are keeping the country going in extremely difficult circumstances, and they will be central to our economic recovery going forward.
“The Government has acknowledged transport workers don’t have enough Personal protective equipment yet have done nothing. The Government must give clear guidance and do more to protect these key workers now.”
