UIN 128701, tabled on 11 December 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of permitting tier 3 residents to travel to non-social commercial and business appointments in tier 2 areas.

The guidance is clear that people must avoid travelling outside their area, including for overnight stays, other than where necessary.

If individuals live in a tier 3 area, they must continue to follow tier 3 rules when they travel to a lower tier area.
