Government hints roadmap out of England lockdown will be delayed

Downing Street has extended the deadline for implementing plans to relax the lockdown, which could delay the day allotted for schools to reopen.

Boris Johnson and other ministers previously announced that the “Roadmap” would be published on February 22nd.

Today the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “We were sure that we would publish the timetable in the week of the 22nd.

“We’re going to put the roadmap up this week, but you have what we said before about trying to let schools know as early as possible, and we said we’re going to give at least two weeks.”

In the meantime, 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.”
