Matt Hancock ‘absolutely open’ to delaying ‘Freedom Day’

Tory MPs have criticised Matt Hancock for saying he is ‘absolutely open’ to delaying ‘Freedom Day’. The Health Secretary refused to rule out keeping face masks and home working beyond June 21, when the Government had hoped to remove all legal limits on social contact. Mr Hancock said the unlocking could be pushed back if the data called for it amid suggestions that there could be a two-week delay.
