UIN 75839, tabled on 16 November 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the Department's Chief Scientific Adviser's oral evidence to the Science and Technology Committee on 26 October 2021, what progress has been made by his Department on formulating a plan C for covid-19 restrictions.

19 November 2021

The Government has published the ‘COVID-19 Response: Autumn and Winter Plan 2021’ to sustain the progress made through the vaccination programme, avoiding the economic and social restrictions deployed in the past. However, in the event of unsustainable pressure on the National Health Service, we have set out a range of measures under ‘Plan B’. We will monitor the data closely, taking action to support and protect the NHS when necessary.
