Sunday Express, March 22nd, Rt Hon Owen Paterson MP
TACKLING the global Covid-19 pandemic is going to require months of sustained, collective effort of a kind not seen in this country since the Second World War.
Beating the virus will require a combination of science, technology, medicine, data, government operations, economic support, international co-operation and social support. There are tough months ahead. Yet deadly though our adversary may be, we know that it can be beaten, and that the Government has pledged to do all it can to win this fight.
So, whilst dealing with Coronavirus is rightly everyone’s top priority, we must still permit ourselves to look to the future. Indeed, it was welcome that the Government published the new Trade Bill this week to demonstrate its resolve in ensuring that important policy areas are not neglected.
