COVID-19: PM set to publish impact assessment of coronavirus restrictions in bid to win over MPs
Boris Johnson is due to publish an impact assessment of coronavirus restrictions as he continues to try to convince Tory MPs to back his plan for a new tier system in England when the national lockdown ends on Wednesday.
The prime minister is expected to share analysis of the health, economic and social ramifications of the measures taken to suppress COVID-19 ahead of a crunch Commons vote on Tuesday.
According to a tally by Sky News, more than 60 Tory MPs have voiced their unhappiness over tiering or have threatened to rebel over the new measures when it comes to the vote.
On Saturday evening, Mr Johnson wrote a letter to potential Tory rebels offering several olive branches to secure their support for the system.
