My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education has not issued any temporary closure directions under schedule 16, paragraph 1 of the Coronavirus Act 2020, nor has he authorised anyone (either local authority or the Office for Students) to issue temporary closure directions under paragraph 4 of Schedule 16 to that Act.
