Yorkshire MP calls for scrapping of ‘appalling’ health and safety watchdog | Yorkshire Post

Speaking in the Commons today Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock hit out at the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for its response to coronavirus cases at a food factory in Wombwell, near Barnsley, where three workers have died.

Ms Peacock said: “Isn’t it time we had a debate on the appalling performance of the Health and Safety Executive?

“Cranswick Foods in Wombwell has had numerous cases of Covid-19 and three deaths, and yet it took the Health and Safety Executive three months to visit the factory, and I’m yet to receive a response to my letter.
