Following the Prime Minister’s announcement Daniel Zeichner MP said:
“The Government needs to be honest. We are at a very difficult point and whilst people’s actions are having an effect, the prevalence of the virus is really high. I fear the Prime Minister is once again putting optimism ahead of safety. Some of his moves look calculated to appease his own MPs who deny risks.
I hope the Government will learn the lessons from before and be much more careful with the easing of restrictions this time.
Of course, the question every resident, student and business wants to know is which tier Cambridge will be in? I am also keen to know over what size areas these new tiers will be brought in? I would not want relatively high levels in the city of Cambridge disguised by lower levels of the virus in surrounding areas.
We want to spend Christmas with our friends and family, but most of all we want to be safe.”
