Covid-19: 'Engagement with all governments in the UK is critical'

Commenting on today’s announcement by the First Minister, Paul Davies MS – the Leader of the Opposition in the Welsh Parliament – said:

“While I recognise that decisions on the lockdown in Wales are a matter for the Welsh Government, it is vital that Governments across the UK coordinate their efforts as much as possible to avoid confusion amongst the public.

Clearly, significant variation in lifting the lockdown may pose a threat to those parts of the country which are at different stages of the pandemic.

I trust that the Welsh Government will continue to engage with all Governments across the UK at this critical time.“
