Kevan Jones, Member for Parliament for North Durham has signed a joint letter to the Secretary of State for Health about the availability of testing data to Local Authorities. The letter was also signed by the Member of Parliament for the City of Durham, Mary Foy, and by the Member of Parliament for Easington, Grahame Morris.

Kevan said:

“In light of the developments in Leicester today, it is concerning that information from National Testing is not being shared with local public health bodies.

“This information is vital if we are to have a clear picture of how the virus is developing in County Durham.”
