MP Robert Halfon calls for insurance scheme to help Harlow workers over Coronavirus

Covid-19 / Wed 4th Mar 2020 pm31 01:17pm

HARLOW MP Robert Halfon rose on the floor of the House of Commons to ask a question on Coronavirus.

Mr Halfon said: “Will my right hon. Friend thank the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow for dealing with a case and for all the work it does?

“May I bring him back to the issue of workers? In Harlow, at least 8,000 people are working in retail, food, customer service, front-of house, leisure, transport and accommodation services.

Those people, who are often on lower pay, could lose their wages, especially if restaurants cut the number of staff, for one reason or another, in the event of a serious outbreak.

“Will the Government consider setting up an insurance scheme if things get much worse to ensure that individuals such as the workers I have mentioned do not lose their incomes?

None of the Socialists have even bothered to comment on this brilliant proposal, typically reticent or, wish we'd thought of it comes to mind.
