Latest updates: Transport secretary warns against booking holidays either at home or abroad; Johnson to face Starmer at PMQs
- Too soon to book holiday in UK or abroad, says Grant Shapps
- Threat of jail term for UK travellers who hide journeys ‘disproportionate’
- Care homes failed by lack of PPE during UK Covid first wave, say MPs
- Global coronavirus updates – live
Starmer says Johnson wants specific recommendations. He has two, he says. He says the government should extend furlough and business rates relief and the VAT cut for hospitality. And it should quarantine everyone on arrival.
Johnson accuses Starmer of bandwagoning. And, referring to a Mail on Sunday story, he says some in Labour welcome this crisis.
Starmer says he won’t take lectures from someone who wrote two versions of every article, who proposed Donald Trump for the Nobel peace prize and who gave Dominic Cummings a pay rise.
He says at least 33 countries have tougher border controls. Why has the government waited 50 days since the discovery of the South African variant before toughening borders.
