The Prime Minister has been clear that the measures that were announced on 31 October and came into force on 5 November are time-limited. They will end on Wednesday 2 December, when the Government will seek to ease restrictions, going back into the tiered system on a local and regional basis.

Throughout the pandemic, the government’s economic priority has remained the same: to protect jobs and livelihoods. Since the start of the pandemic the government has provided support for people, businesses, and public services totalling an estimated £200 billion.
