The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Grant Shapps: You won’t legally need two jabs to return to the office” – below is their description.

His comments sparked concern among Conservative backbenchers, with Steve Baker, the Tory MP and deputy chairman of the lockdown-sceptic Covid Recovery Group, warning “the Government is now encouraging discrimination in relation to vaccinations”.
