Eye-watering cost of Covid self-isolation unveiled – REAL reason Boris forced to wield axe


Asked what impact delayed relaxation of restrictions in devolved nations would have on the wider economy, Mr Jessop told Express.co.uk: “Obviously, 85 percent of the country is in England, so getting England right is the most important thing.

“It looks like Scotland and possibly Wales will lag behind a week or two, but we don’t have good regional data that would allow me to say this is costing them an extra whatever.

“But I think it will be certainly true that England will recover more quickly than Scotland in particular.

“Scotland will follow us with the usual one-to-two-week lag and some faffing around across the hospitality sector, but that’ll all come out in the wash. They’ll catch up pretty quickly.”
