The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “PMQs in full: Boris Johnson faces Keir Starmer and MPs in parliament – watch livestream” – below is their description.
Watch PMQs live from the House of Commons from 12pm.
Boris Johnson will face questions from Keir Starmer and other MPs as it emerges that ministers are preparing to lift all remaining restrictions on July 19 in favour of a push towards “personal responsibility”.
Number 10 is optimistic that all legal limits will be removed on July 19 – which is expected to include the end of face coverings and the two-metre rule.
It comes amid fears that maintaining them any longer will have a devastating economic impact, after a leaked report found that keeping non-pharmaceutical interventions after step four in the Prime Minister’s roadmap would cost the industry billions, according to Politico.
The review, dubbed the Events Research Programme, found that even relatively small ones like face masks would have such a massive impact.
Although there is no suggestion that restrictions will be removed after the two-week break point on July 5, those in Whitehall are said to be heartened by the continued low death rates, despite a rise in cases.
