An apology must be made over Doncaster Races false allegation

Commenting on the statement released by Doncaster Races following remarks made yesterday by the Labour Party's Health Minister, Andrew RT Davies MS – the Welsh Conservative Health spokesperson – said:“This false allegation regarding Doncaster Races appears to be yet another example of staggering incompetence from the Health Minister and the Welsh Labour-led Government.“Only on Tuesday, the Minister, was forced to admit he had sat on a serious data breach involving 18,000 Welsh patients for two weeks and hadn’t bothered to inform his boss, the First Minister.“And last night, we learn that his comments to the Welsh Parliament yesterday regarding the Coronavirus outbreak in the Rhondda were horribly wrong.“In a public health crisis, it’s vital that the information government and ministers provide to the people of Wales is accurate, and as such the record must be corrected and a clarification and apology provided immediately by the Labour Party.”You may also be interested in   Shadow Minister calls for action to ensure proper scrutiny arrangements in county councils during pandemicThursday, 17 September, 2020Mark Isherwood MS – the Shadow Minister for Local Government, Housing, and Communities – has called for assurances from the Welsh Labour-led Government that all county councils in Wales will still be governed democratically during the Covid-19 pandemic.
