Coronavirus graphicResponding to ONS statistics that reveal England has had the highest excess mortality across Europe in the first half of 2020, Liberal Democrat Health spokesperson Munira Wilson said:

"The unforgiving consequences of the pandemic have left too many families mourning loved ones. It didn't need to be like this.

"It is clear the Government has made mistakes. With a possible second wave occurring in countries across Europe at the moment, the Prime Minister must launch an independent inquiry immediately.

"This is not a time for protecting political interests. This is a time to learn from mistakes and protect the country from more heartache."
