 Limited household mixing to be allowed across UK for ‘small number of days’ at Christmas

A

plan to allow a limited level of mixing between households for “a small number of days” over Christmas in the UK, has been discussed by the UK’s four nations.

Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove met with leaders of Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland over the weekend to discuss shared arrangements for the festive period.

The Cabinet Office said the leaders of the devolved nations “endorsed a shared objective of facilitating some limited additional household bubbling for a small number of days”.

But according to the PA news agency, the Prime Minister will be unable to say how many households will be allowed to mix over Christmas and for how many days restrictions will be relaxed for, until a later date.

According to reports in the Sun, four households could be allowed to “bubble up” for five days. However a Cabinet Office spokesperson was unable to confirm the reports that up to four families would be allowed to mix at Christmas.
