Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson could be set to kickstart the hospitality industry by abolishing the two-metre rule on Monday so that restaurants and bars can reopen, reports claim.
The Prime Minister could be set to take full control of the social distancing measure, and is thought to be considering relaxing the two-metre rule, reports claim.
This crucial intervention from the Prime Minister comes as one of the country’s leading restaurateurs warns that if it is not scrapped, the hospitality sector will be hit by millions of job losses.
Saturday night, Tory MPs predicted that the review – to be run by Downing Street’s newly appointed Permanent Secretary, Simon Case – would provide a road map for the two-metre rule to be relaxed in time for the reopening of pubs on July 4, the Mail on Sunday reports.
The news of the planned lift of lockdown measures comes after 12 regions in England reported zero new infections in the last week.
