Business secretary says Government resisting calls for coronavirus Plan B restrictions

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng says the Government is not currently planning to introduce Plan B coronavirus restrictions, despite calls from the NHS Confederation to do so. Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Mr Kwarteng said ministers and scientists were monitoring Covid-19 data "on an hourly basis", and do not feel additional coronavirus restrictions are necessary. Instead, Mr Kwarteng said the Government would continue to focus on encouraging people to receive coronavirus vaccines, including booster jabs.
