Michael Briefs Northampton Borough Council Leaders on Government’s Coronavirus Plan

On Friday, 20th March I met the Leader of Northampton Borough Council and the Chief Executive of the Council in the Guildhall to discuss the rapidly evolving situation with regards to Covid-19 and to discuss the county’s response.

Northamptonshire County Council is leading local efforts in accordance with Government guidance. As one of the seven Northamptonshire MPs I will support them in any way I can. Further meetings and telephone conferences are planned.

Northamptonshire County Council have a dedicated website with updates which is available here: https://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/coronavirus-updates/Pages/default.aspx.

As a Government minister working on the Government’s response to Covid-19 I was able to brief local leaders on what the Government’s plans are, how the emergency Bill will help and what it involves and how central Government can support local authorities during this difficult time. I will continue to work together with Local Authorities in Northamptonshire to try to help residents.

The next weeks and months will be hard on a lot of people but we will get through this together.
