Boris Johnson tells MPs there is “no alternative” to blocking England – BBC News




Boris Johnson has told the House of Commons that there is no alternative to a four-week closure in England. Some Conservative MPs are strongly opposed to the measure, saying it is not justified and will cause tremendous damage to the economy. In the commons, the prime minister said he regretted the seriousness of the cuts, but was left with no alternative. A new 5-level reduction system has been put in place in Scotland. No part of Scotland has been placed at the highest level. Central Belt, including Glasgow and Edinburgh, will be on the 3rd level of the new system as pubs and restaurants will close at 6pm and no alcohol will be sold. Many communities in the Highlands and Islands will be at Level 1 with quieter rules. A two-week ceasefire in Wales will be lifted. Two houses may form a bubble and mix, but traveling to the border from England will not be allowed without a reasonable excuse due to the English closure.
