CBI respond to launch of Govt Track and Trace

The CBI (Confederation of Bristish Industry) have released their response to new NHS Test and Trace service launched earlier this week.

Mathew Fell, CBI Chief UK Policy Director said:

“Test and trace has an important role to play in the fight against COVID-19 and can help to unlock our economy safely and effectively.

“The process can help build confidence among employees and customers alike as factories and stores gradually begin to re-open.

“When the service is coupled with technology, it will enable a more targeted approach to pinpoint and avoid any future flare ups that would endanger the restart. High standards of governance and transparency will be important to maintain people’s trust in the use of their personal data.”

Across the UK, the CBI speaks on behalf of 190,000 businesses of all sizes and sectors. The CBI’s corporate members together employ nearly 7 million people, about one third of private sector-employees. With offices in the UK as well as representation in Brussels, Washington, Beijing and Delhi, the CBI communicates the British business voice around the world.
