Disappointed by MP’s reply

Dear Sir

I was most disappointed by David Warburton’s reply to Scott Ward’s letter in the last edition of the Frome Times. I found it quite depressing that he began with dismissing the Labour Party motion as of no consequence.  To produce a party reaction to an opposition motion is incomprehensible given the situation the country is in. Surely we all need to work together to combat the current pandemic.

Despite the huge majority that the Conservative Party has at the moment it really needs to be ready to listen to the country. It is a party that is prepared to squander 12bn on private companies which have failed to effectively run a test and trace system without listening to local health providers, yet it is unwilling to spend 125 million on providing free school meals apparently because it has been put forward by those outside the ruling clique.

Mick Randall,

    I also note that the Conservative party did not go through a transparent tendering process to choose the companies to make the PPE and to organise the Test and Trace system, but, amazingly, those companies given these lucrative contracts all had contacts within the Conservative party.
    David Warburton did not comment on this, nor did he comment on the fact that MP’s are able to take advantage of subsidized food in the Houses of Parliament, while simultaneously refusing to vote for free school meals for those children who need them, through the school holidays.

    It looks like some of the written text within your posts are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my internet browser because
