CORONAVIRUS

The coronavirus is having a huge impact around the world.  In our country, it's leading to measures which none of us imagined we would ever see, including orders for people to self-isolate, real concerns over the ability of our public services to cope, major impacts on local businesses, and emergency legislation.

As your MP, I am taking action in 3 main ways:

Holding the Government and the health authorities to account

I will continue to question Government ministers about their response to the epidemic and will keep you updated with what I am doing to follow up with the health authorities too. I am in touch with NHS leaders to try to ensure they have all they need and with healthcare workers who are on the frontline and require our support as a priority.  https://www.carolinelucas.com/latest/holding-the-government-to-account

Economic impact for our city

Brighton and Hove’s economy is particularly reliant on sectors like tourism and hospitality, which are severely affected by the pandemic. I continue to work with businesses and local industry representatives to ensure Ministers know what is needed to protect the city’s economy, jobs and so many people’s livelihoods https://www.carolinelucas.com/latest/economic-impact-of-coronavirus
