Highlights of the week ending 21 January

As the Government announced an end to “Plan B” and mandatory mask wearing, Secretary of State, Nadhim Zahawi, has been accused of micromanagement by teaching unions for wanting to vet plans to bring back masks in classrooms. Local health leaders must consult him, should they wish to reintroduce masks in their area. Over 100 schools have said that they will continue the need for masks in lessons.
