Following Keir Starmer’s announcement, Daniel Zeichner MP said: “Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party seemed to have stopped listening to scientific advice but I support a two-to-three week “circuit break” in line with SAGE’s recommendation.

Of course it will involve sacrifices but what the country needs is a clear plan. The government acted far too slowly last time and I fear they are doing so again. We need to get the spread of the virus down again to slow infections and hospital admissions. Not acting now is just creating bigger problems for the future.

Crucially throughout the period the Government would need to fix test and trace – there’s no need for any “world-beating” or “moonshot” rhetoric, we just need something functional. For the sake of people’s lives, health, jobs, education, and our local economy, I hope the Prime Minister listens to the evidence and the constructive advice Keir Starmer is offering and acts decisively.”
