To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the cap since 13 September 2020 has been on the number of tests that can be done at (a) drive in test centres and (b) walk through test centres; and who is responsible for setting that cap.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
25 November 2020
The cap for the number of tests available at drive through sites is set on a daily basis and therefore the number of tests available on any given day does vary.
We are expanding capacity continually, having already surpassed our testing capacity target of 500,000 tests a day by the end of October.
