With coronavirus cases continuing to rise - the last daily count revealed more than 14,000 new positive tests across the UK - additional restrictions are to be imposed on parts of England early next week. These could include a ban on overnight stays away from home and the closure of pubs and restaurants. Fresh measures in England are likely to be accompanied by a new three-tier system for local lockdowns - explained here - with areas with the worst infection rates, such as Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle, likely to be subject to the tightest restrictions. However, there remains a debate in cabinet over how far restrictions in the top tier should go, with some ministers fearful about the impact on the economy. Labour has been questioning the scientific basis for forcing pubs in England to close at 10pm. The Treasury is looking at providing financial support to the industry in the worst-hit areas, and plans for additional money for local authorities.
