Holly Lynch MP, Labour’s Shadow Immigration Minister, in response to the votes in the House of Commons on the Immigration Bill, said:
“Yet again, the Immigration Bill has shown the Tories’ rank hypocrisy towards care workers and frontline NHS staff.
“They even voted against an impact assessment of the terrible damage their changes will have on our health service. This is not only putting the health of the public at risk, it’s also a shameful insult to the over 180,000 staff working in the NHS, from across the EU.
“Labour is deeply concerned about the impact that this could have on our health service, particularly during the second spike of this virus.”
