I know how hard the pandemic has been for many people across Wrexham; I have listened to the concerns that have been coming into my emails, or that I have heard from people on the street. That is why I am fully backing the UK Government’s efforts to pull the UK out of the pandemic and to support individuals, businesses, and the town as we all get back on our feet.
The UK Government has done so much throughout the pandemic to help those that have needed it. For one, it has created one of the most comprehensive packages of economic support of any nation, which has protected jobs, individuals and businesses and has supported the economy. Importantly, these measures will be continued throughout the year to ensure that individuals, families, and businesses are properly supported.
Indeed, our vaccine rollout has also been world-beating, and with the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine bottled here in Wrexham there is hope for us all. The success of the vaccine rollout provides opportunities for further investment and growth in Wrexham’s healthcare and STEM sectors, whilst the rollout also evidences the importance and strength of the Union. The vaccine effort has been driven by innovation, knowledge, and a spirit of collaboration from all four nations of the United Kingdom. As such, the vaccine rollout, whilst pulling us out of the pandemic and ensuring the economy and society reopen, also provides a model for the post-pandemic United Kingdom.
