I have been contacted about Covid-19 and transport staff.
It is vital that we protect transport staff. Guidance has been issued to help transport operators protect their staff as lockdown eases. The guidance encourages operators to carry out risk assessments, set out clear rules on interacting with passengers, re-deploy clinically vulnerable people to where the risk is lower and use screens to create a physical barrier at places such as ticket offices.
I have been reassured that the Government is working closely with transport operators to protect transport workers.
The death of Belly Mujinga was tragic and my thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time. Belly Mujinga was simply doing her job at Victoria station, helping those who needed to travel. I understand that the British Transport Police have now invited the Crown Prosecution Service to conduct an independent review of the available evidence. I will closely follow any developments and welcome the fact that the CPS will now have the opportunity to review this case.
I will be following this issue closely and I will ensure that ministers are made aware of the strength of feeling of my constituents.
