A letter signed by 20 MPs has today been sent to the Leader of the Opposition, the Rt Hon Keir Starmer MP; and Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester.
Jerome Mayhew MP said:
Let's work together to avoid another damaging lockdown. We must tackle the virus on a regional basis, responding to the infection rates if we are to save lives, look after the NHS, keep children in school, and shelter the economy.
