A Circuit-Breaker Could Break The Economy (with Anthony Browne MP)
The prime minister is under growing pressure to order a national "circuit-breaker" lockdown, just as he rolled out the new three-tier system of restrictions. It's backed by Labour leader Keir Starmer and the government's own scientific advisers.
But Anthony Browne, Conservative MP for South Cambridgeshire, says the government's current measures in England are beginning to work, and a circuit breaker would run the risk of damaging the economy. He says government action needs to balance dealing with virus infections and keeping the economy going.
