MPs debate government’s emergency coronavirus powers – watch Matt Hancock deliver the latest on the virus
MPs debating proposals to extend the government’s emergency Covid-19 powers as new restrictions and fines come into force in England.

Hancock: Everywhere that used an elimination strategy saw a resurgence. There have been 12.4 million downloads of the NHS Covid-19 app as of today. The quicker we get this virus under control the quicker we can release the restrictions.
Matt Hancock announced that legal restrictions on households mixing will be introduced for northeast England. He added that the government does not take theses steps lightly but must take them.
