To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the less than 100 per cent efficacy of covid-19 vaccines, what steps he will take to enable workers who are at greater risk to covid-19 to continue to work from home after stage four of lockdown roadmap restrictions are lifted.

On Monday 5 July, my Rt. Hon. Friend the Prime Minister set out the details of the final stage of the roadmap and our approach for managing Covid as we learn to live with the virus. The ‘Working Safely’ guidance will be updated in advance of moving to step 4 which will happen on 19 July. We will update the ‘Working Safely’ guidance with the latest advice to help employers take reasonable steps to manage the risks and support their staff and customers. It is up to employers to use this guidance to update their working arrangements in line with Step 4 and communicate this to their staff.
