Description

The government has extended stricter Covid rules to Liverpool, Warrington, Hartlepool and Middlesborough, just a day after getting fresh backing for its powers from MPs.

Bill Esterson, Labour MP for Sefton Central and shadow international trade minister, tells Bloomberg Westminster's Sebastian Salek and Roger Hearing the measures are necessary to deal with rapidly escalating infections, but there does need to be better communication with the public on the need for them.

Plus, Dr Alan Wager, research associate at the UK in a Changing Europe, joins to discuss the consequences of the EU's decision to begin legal action against the UK over the Internal Market Bill.
