  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “In full: MPs debate and vote on extending emergency Covid laws in England for another four weeks” – below is their description.

    Boris Johnson faces the prospect of a Tory rebellion when MPs are asked to approve the extension of coronavirus restrictions in England until July 19.

    The House of Commons will vote on Wednesday evening on the four-week delay to the end of lockdown measures, aimed at buying more time for the vaccine programme.

    Labour has signalled it will back the extension so the Prime Minister should be spared a defeat, but Conservative lockdown sceptics are likely to express their anger during a debate.

    Scientific advisers have said the delay is necessary to prevent a fresh spike in hospital admissions due to the rapidly spreading Delta variant first identified in India.
