50 Tory MPs demand “clear roadmap” for Northern regions

50 Tory MPs have written to the Prime Minister calling for a “clear roadmap” for Northern regions that have been placed under the toughest economic restrictions.

The North has been disproportionately affected by Tier 3 restrictions, which see some business having to shut their doors, as well as other knock-on effects for the wider economy.

The Northern Research Group has asked the Prime Minister, in a letter, to set out a clear road-map for the regions that have been affected, as well as a concrete economic recovery policy specific to the North.

Politicians have been vocal about their lack of knowledge of how Northern regions can hope to escape the Very High tier, including Sir Keir Starmer during Prime Minister’s Questions last week.

Mr Johnson assured the Leader of the Opposition that the easiest way to be moved out of Tier 3 was to get the R number at or below one, however, SAGE doubted whether the Very High tier of restrictions actually did enough to get an area out of the highest tier.
