BRITISH MINISTER, BORIS JOHNSON LIKELY TO CONSOLIDATE COVID-19 RULES IN THE UK.
Issues concerning the taming of the Covid-19 pandemic across the globe. British plans to introduce new Covid laws that would last the next six months to help track the anticipated challenges of the winter.
However, UK’s Act on Coronavirus states that it has to be renewed every six months and this accounts for the reason Boris Johnson seeks a vote to carry them through a longer period following the return of the British Parliament to session.
While these moves may receive a huge rejection by critics of the Prime Minister amongst the MPs who are motivated to experience a viable economic recovery process as a top agenda.
On one hand, a government official expressed his opinion saying ‘We will allow temporary powers in the Coronavirus Act to expire wherever possible, as we have at previous review points”.
While another school of thought opines that “we are going to have to learn to live with this virus and retaining sweeping powers of detention in the Coronavirus Act is not consistent with this. What justification can there be for extending these measures?”
The last is yet to be seen on Boris Johnson’s plan in the forthcoming weeks.
