Boris Johnson 'very confident' all Covid restrictions will end on 21 June


PM says businesses will continue to get economic support until they can operate as normal

Boris Johnson has said he is “very confident” all restrictions on normal life will end on 21 June, saying the government will continue to provide economic support to businesses until they can operate as normal – appearing to confirm that many financial packages will be extended in the chancellor’s March budget.

Johnson said the government would “continue to put our arms around everybody” during the pandemic, when asked about unemployment, but suggested the coronavirus crisis had “accelerated” changes that had been happening naturally to the economy.
