COVID-19: Minister dismisses another blockade as PM urged to apply ‘Plan B’ to avoid winter crisis |  UK News

Speaking on Wednesday morning, the business secretary added: “I think the conversation about restrictions on travel, restrictions on more lockdowns is completely unhelpful.” But asked by Kay Burley on Sky News whether the UK could be facing another lockdown, Mr Kwarteng said: “I would rule that out.” Asked whether more travel restrictions could be brought back in, he told Burley: “No, I don’t think so.”

Responding to the business secretary’s remarks, Mr Taylor warned stricter measures may need to be implemented in the future if “some inconveniences” are not brought back in now. “We know that things are almost inevitably going to get worse,” he told Sky News. Image:

“We don’t want to go back into lockdown and further restrictions,” Mr Kwarteng later clarified. Challenged on the fact that the government said similar last year before further measures were introduced, the business secretary said: “This time last year we didn’t have the vaccine.”
