Boris Johnson has promised MPs Tiers will be decided on a more "granular" basis from the mid-December review, as he tries to persuade them to back the vote later today

#Covid19 #Tiers…
As many as 60 Tories are expected to vote against the PM, with the "vast majority" of Mark Harper's Covid Recovery Group leading the charge
Jeremy Wright, the former Attorney General, says he is voting against the new tiering system, his first rebellion against the Government in 10 years
Adam Afriyie, the Tory MP for Windsor, says there are "plenty of alternatives" to the tiered system
Labour's Derek Twigg will also vote against the PM. He adds, "The Government strategy seems to be all over the place"
Sammy Wilson from the DUP calls Covid restrictions "Project Fear on steroids"… Image
🔴 Tier 2 and 3 restrictions apply to 99% of England

📌 The stricter tier system will cost approximately £900 million a day

🔴 More than 23 million people in England face the highest tier restrictions… Image
Only three areas - Cornwall, the Isle of Wight and Isles of Scilly - have been placed into the lowest Tier 1 category…
