Speaking on The News Agents podcast, Mr Starmer said: “My only concern is about my family. I have always been concerned about them.
“I have a wife who has her own life and I need to ensure that she can live her own life in the way that she wants. I have got two children, I have got a 15-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. My biggest concern is how do I protect them as we go into this.”
