This is a very important study on vitamin D and Covid-19. Its findings are incredibly clear. An 80% reduction in need for ICU and a 60% reduction in deaths, simply by giving a very cheap and very safe therapy - calcifediol, or activated vitamin D.…
The findings of this large and well conducted study should result in this therapy being administered to every Covid patient in every hospital in the temperate latitudes.
Furthermore, since the study demonstrates that the clear relationship between vitamin D and Covid mortality is causal, the UK government should increase the dose and availability of free vitamin D to all the vulnerable groups.
These approaches will save many thousands of lives. They are overdue and should be started immediately.

Anybody interested in the erratic advice of the government about wearing masks should read this paper…
It may be why countries like Austria/Czechia/Slovakia have made masks compulsory in some circumstances, and also why the CDC changed their advice.
Turns out the "scientific" advice was actually based on assumptions that date back to the 1930s, which now seem to be wrong.

I couldn't get into Treasury Questions to ask @Jesse_Norman about the Loan Charge today. These are the points I would have made:
1. Sir Amyas Morse's report raises the point that the Treasury was still losing significant test cases up to 2015 and it was only resolved by the Supreme Court in 2017.
2. The review also said that 2017 legislation's retrospective elements were completely without legal precedent.

The Treasury’s forecasts in the past have almost never been right and have more often been dramatically wrong. Take their forecasts for the effects of a Leave vote made in May 2016.
They said that in the 18 months after the referendum the economy would contract by at best 0.1 per cent and at worst 2.1 per cent. Instead, it GREW by 2.8 per cent. This is an error of 4.9% - up to £100 billion.
If Parliament rejects the Government's current proposal, then the Government can press for a Canada+++ free trade deal backed by technical solutions on the Irish border.

I have spent the last few days in Washington talking to US Government Trade and Treasury officials encouraging a free trade deal with the UK. Excellent response. They have already started on the procedures to allow negotiations to start immediately once we leave the EU in March.
This will not be possible if we accept the Government's proposed deal with Europe, which will block every avenue of negotiation with America.
We have to have a Canada+++ deal to allow us to have a free trade deal with America

Today we set out more detail on how we think the UK, as a third country, can continue to cooperate with the EU on security and keep our people safe and prosperous.
As I travel around Member States I hear how much our partners value the UK commitment to the EU’s security.
A relationship based solely on existing third country precedents, as some seem to be suggesting, would lead to a substantial and avoidable reduction in our shared security capability.
