As the Government begins to slowly and cautiously lift some of the restrictions, it hopes to be able to return some pupils to school. This will not happen any earlier than 1 June, and only if the five key tests set by Government justify the changes at the time.
On Friday the 15th of May the MP for Fareham Suella Braverman headed a meeting which included several south coast MPs and representatives of Natural England. Discussed at the meeting were a number of strategies to break the nitrates deadlock around the Solent region.
Suella has welcomed the top ups given to businesses and charities, to help them get by during the current Coronavirus pandemic. This is following her action taken on behalf of residents to lobby the Treasury for the extension of the schemes.
