Boris Johnson has not booked a summer holiday as rules remain unclear

The government is “doing everything it can to make sure people can vacation this summer,” Downing Street said.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “Of course we are doing everything we can to make sure people can vacation this summer and we know people are concerned about safety, but unfortunately we are unable to provide more detailed information at this moment.

“The Prime Minister said yesterday that it was too early to be sure what we can do this summer.

“And again, I would like to refer to the roadmap that we will be releasing next week, which will provide more detailed information on the facilitations we intend to introduce, but again it will be based on the review we will be doing next week. “

The spokesman said Boris Johnson has not yet booked a summer vacation.

“I’m sure the Prime Minister obviously wants to take a summer break with everyone else, but he hasn’t planned any.”

Downing Street said ministers would “review the data” after Sir Jeremy Farrar said he believes the number of coronavirus infections must be below 10,000 before restrictions can be relaxed.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “We want infection rates to continue to fall across the UK, not least to ease pressure on the NHS and ultimately lead to fewer people dying sadly.

“We will look at the data in the round and use this to inform the roadmap.”

Downing Street has insisted it “believes in our vaccine supply” after the Scottish government announced that the program would be scaled back after a drop in supplies to the UK.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “We are confident we can deliver vaccines and we are confident that we can achieve our goal of vaccinating all of these top four groups by Monday.”

“And from then on, we will continue the prioritization list and continue to provide large numbers of vaccines every day to those lower down on this phase 1 list.

“We are confident of delivery but have not commented on any details of delivery schedules or movements of the vaccines.”
