I also wrote to the Home Secretary in April on covid border measures, and the reply on her behalf from her Home Office colleague, Baroness Williams, said that

“we have brought in the right measures at the right time”,

but we now know that the Home Secretary did not believe that, because she recently said publicly that she had wanted the borders closed. Is it not the case that it is not only my hon. Friend Nick Thomas-Symonds who believes that these new measures are too late, but that by her own admission she believes that herself?
