“The NHS is running hot at the moment dealing with backlog recovery and emergency care pressures.”
“Health leaders are very aware of the damaging effects that prolonged social restrictions could have on the nation’s physical health and mental wellbeing…Yet, according to our survey the majority of NHS leaders are concerned about the risks that lifting prematurely could have on the NHS’s ability to cope”.
“Delta can spread like wildfire”
“Extend the moratorium on Commercial eviction”
“Cancel the introduction of Business Rates from 1 July”.
“Every corridor is full of patients on trolleys.”
“Fundamentally, there was no proper border policy, because the Prime Minister never wanted a proper border policy.”
“Too many of us making decisions have forgotten what it feels like to be a 20-year-old or how miserable it is to be a 20-year-old right now.”
“likely be able to offer a first dose”
“to all adults…by July, but the vaccinations”
“the first review due by Monday 19th July 2021.”
“England will remain at Step 3 for a further 4 weeks (subject to further review).”
“to gather more evidence that the…tests can be met”-
“allow more people to receive vaccinations…further reducing these risks”,
“I had Covid. I have antibodies. I have had both jabs. I’ve worn a mask. I’ve sanitised to within an inch of my life… But now, #ImDone no more. It's over.”
“in some instances undermined legal certainty by laying claim to legal requirements that do not exist. The Government does not have, and must not assume, authority to mandate public behaviour other than as required by law. The consequence has been a lack of clarity on which rules are legally enforceable, posing challenges for the police and local government…and potentially undermining public compliance and confidence.”
“to gather more evidence that the…tests can be met”
“As things stand, and on the evidence that I can see right now, I am confident that we will not need more than four weeks and that we won’t need to go beyond 19 July.”
