COVID-19: Boris Johnson aims to end home counseling work from June 21 | Political news

Britons should no longer be notified to work from home after June 21 provided the country remains “on track” in the fight against the coronavirus, Boris Johnson told MPs.

the Prime Minister told the House of Commons on Wednesday that he “intended” to end home counseling work in less than six weeks.

And Mr Johnson predicted that the ‘dynamism’ of English towns could return ‘remarkably quickly’ once workers return to offices.

The guidance on working from home in England has been in place since early January when the country’s third national lockdown began.

As part of the Prime Minister’s roadmap to lift these lockdown restrictions, the government has promised a review of social distancing measures ahead of the fourth and final stage of the roadmap, scheduled for June 21.

The review should also inform government guidance on working from home, with people being encouraged to continue working from home where they can until this review is completed.

Earlier this week, Mr Johnson confirmed that England will move to the third stage of the roadmap from Monday, May 17.

But Downing Street said that despite the latest unlock, people would still be encouraged to continue working from home when possible at step three.

The Prime Minister was asked on Wednesday about when the home orientation work could end.

Felicity Buchan, Conservative MP for Kensington, asked: “The economy of central London is suffering, in part from the lack of commuters, in part from the lack of international visitors.

“Can you confirm that the plan is to take the home guidance job off June 21, provided we stay on track?”
