I refer the hon. Member to the answers given to PQs 45274 and 907859.

To help the public comply with the latest guidance, Please Give Me Space cards and badges were created in collaboration with the RNIB, and are available on for download and print for those who are exempt from wearing face coverings. The badge and other assets were shared via Government social media channels, with disability charities, and with relevant enforcers of face covering guidelines to raise awareness, such as the police and public transport firms. COVID-19 guidance is published on and amplified via our public information campaign.
