PM confirms if coronavirus certificates will be needed to enter pubs

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the coronavirus certificate requirement for visiting premises such as a pub could be decided by landlords.

When asked if such a certificate might be required for the pub, Mr Johnson told the Commons Liaison Committee, “I think it is – it may be due to individual tax collectors, it may be due to the landlord.”

While traveling, the Prime Minister admitted that things were “looking difficult” on the continent when asked when international travel could be resumed.

“On April 5th we will receive the results of the global travel task force and I will set out what I think is possible from May 17th,” he told the Commons Liaison Committee.

“It looks difficult on the continent and we have to look at the developing situation.

Boris Johnson said “we need to look at the situation on the channel” and “we cannot rule out and will use more stringent measures” to address the risk of importing coronavirus variants from France.

“If there is a need to test we will, but I think you should understand the balance between doing this, the trade disruption and the risk we are trying to address,” he told the Liaison Committee.

When asked by Labor’s Yvette Cooper, he said, “We are going to make a difficult decision to cut this trade, cut these flows when we believe there is a need to protect public health and create new varieties to stop im.

“We may have to do that very soon.”
