Liz Truss has been told to “get a grip” on the monkeypox outbreak by the Labour Party in a letter exclusively obtained by GAY TIMES.

She has also been asked to clarify what she and the Government Equalities Office (GEO), which she oversees as Minister for Women and Equalities, are doing to raise awareness about the infection and limit its spread.

The letter, which was sent on 18 August by Anneliese Dodds, the Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, states that Labour is “gravely concerned” by news that the UK’s vaccination rollout will effectively come to a halt for several weeks due to issues with supply. “The Government Equalities Office that you lead should be supporting UK HSA and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to reach this high-risk group and signpost them to the information, support and resources they need to protect themselves and prevent the spread of the disease,” part of it reads.
