Plaid questions Welsh Labour’s ‘disappearing WhatsApp messages’

Responding to revelations about the Labour Welsh Government’s use of WhatsApp from the UK Covid Inquiry’s first day in Wales, Plaid Cymru’s spokesperson for Health and Social Care, Mabon ap Gwynfor MS said:

“Despite previously reassuring the Senedd that WhatsApp wasn’t used or that they had passed everything to the Inquiry, we’re already seeing the Labour Welsh Government’s lies being further exposed on the first day of the UK Covid Inquiry.

“It is quite simply alarming that the most Senior Special Advisers to the Labour Welsh Government encouraged each other and others to ‘clear out WhatsApp chat once a week’, and that Vaughan Gething as the Health Minister at the time turned on disappearing messages. It begs the question of what else the Government could be hiding, hoping it will slip through the cracks.

“As they continue to avoid full and proper scrutiny about decisions taken during the pandemic which affected every single person, Plaid Cymru is calling for an urgent statement from the Labour Welsh Government and to finally heed our calls for a Wales-specific Covid Inquiry to finally get answers.”
