Chris Chope seeks evidence about Coronavirus rules for holiday homes from the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office:
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, pursuant to the Answer of 13 April 2021 to Question 174724 on Caravan Sites and Holiday Accommodation: Coronavirus, if he will publish the scientific evidence that opening facilities too early or too quickly risks another lockdown.
The Government published scientific evidence underlying the roadmap in February. The evidence indicated that reopening accommodation and encouraging non essential travel across England raised the risk of transmission, and the Government therefore decided to introduce reopening in phases - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-response-spring-2021/covid-19-response-spring-2021
I refer the hon. Member to the SAGE 81 minutes which can be found here. We have also shared SPI-M-O: Summary of modelling on roadmap scenarios.
