Liberal Party NEC Statement - Further Covid Restriction in the UK
The Liberal Party notes the media speculation created by this weekend’s Cobra committee meeting to discuss the government’s response to a potential surge in Covid cases over Christmas and the New Year, driven by the Omicron variant.

Any such re-imposition of restriction on gatherings and social interaction should be evidence based and proportionate to the threat to the NHS and the need to prevent the service being overwhelmed by hospital admissions.

The party believes that the UK hospitality and entertainment industries need immediate assurances from government that they will be assisted to remain viable during any period of restriction at a key time of the year.

We fully support the Government and NHS’s voluntary vaccine campaign which we believe remain the most effective way to protect the nation during this latest surge in cases and urge all those eligible to take up the offer of vaccination.
