Holding answer received on 09 June 2020

The Government has published a broad strategy on our plans for the measures and how we will review them in the ‘Our plan to rebuild: The UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy’ document on 11 May. The Prime Minister made an oral statement to the Commons on 11 May. In addition, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care made Written Ministerial Statements on 28 April (HCWS206) and 2 June (HCWS253).

In recognition of the importance of transparency in these unprecedented times, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) has been publishing the statements and the accompanying evidence it has reviewed to demonstrate how the scientific understanding of COVID-19 has continued to evolve as new data emerges, and how SAGE’s advice has quickly adapted to new findings that reflect a changing situation. The relevant information can be found at the following link:

This list will be updated as SAGE releases papers from recent and future meetings.
