Published on January 11, 2021 by

Lockdown rules in the UK are ‘not boundaries to be pushed against’, the vaccines minister has warned, as he admitted there was concern at non-compliance with social distancing measures in supermarkets.

As the second week of England’s third national lockdown begins, ministers are considering how to achieve greater enforcement of social distancing and mask-wearing in supermarkets.

Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi said the government doesn’t ‘want to go any tougher’ than the current lockdown rules, but suggested there could be a tightening of existing restrictions.
