Contact Tracing Funding and Powers and Resources for Councils and Public Health Teams — 14 Oct 2020 at 18:51
The majority of MPs voted not to provide more funding for contact tracing across all parts of the country and against ensuring that councils and local public health teams receive the resources and powers they require.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- notes the consistently high performance of local contact tracing systems when compared with the centralised system established by the Government;
- notes the wealth of evidence that the considerable sums of public money spent so far on the national system would deliver better public health outcomes if devolved to local authorities and public health experts; and
- calls on the Government to extend the additional funding for contact tracing available in Tier 3 areas to all parts of the country and ensure that councils and local public health teams receive the resources and powers they require.
