All legal limits on social contact are set to be removed in June, Boris Johnson told MPs today. Setting out his timetable for easing England’s third Covid-19 lockdown, the Prime Minister told MPs that “the end really is in sight… and a wretched year will give way to a very different spring and summer ahead”.
Under the new plans, which the PM hopes will allow the “cautious, but also irreversible” lifting of lockdown, most of society and the economy will reopen by May – including pubs, restaurants, shops, hotels and live sport. Currently the measures only apply to England, but the PM assured the Commons that he is working closely with the devolved nations.
