COVID-19: Commandeer production of British-made PPE for frontline staff

Petition Details

We want the government to commandeer all appropriate UK industries to manufacture personal protective equipment (PPE), including protective suits, FP3 masks, gowns, safety glasses and visors, etc. Engage with British industry and volunteers to upscale production of PPE that is proven to be safe.

Additional Information

This country prides itself on its historic ability to galvanise and mobilise its willing and resourceful citizens, to turn their hands to manufacturing vital supplies in a time of crisis. Real leadership by the Government is needed urgently to coordinate this effort, in order to avoid needless loss of life of our NHS staff and volunteers. It is the socially, politically, medically, industrially, economically and ecologically responsible thing to do.
