Question for Cabinet Office

UIN 185791, tabled on 22 April 2021

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, pursuant to the Answer of 13 April 2021 to Question 174724 on Caravan Sites and Holiday Accommodation: Coronavirus, if he will publish the scientific evidence that opening facilities too early or too quickly risks another lockdown.

The Government published scientific evidence underlying the roadmap in February. The evidence indicated that reopening accommodation and encouraging non essential travel across England raised the risk of transmission, and the Government therefore decided to introduce reopening in phases - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-response-spring-2021/covid-19-response-spring-2021
