Coronavirus LIVE Updates: UK Death Toll In Hospitals Rises By 15

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has said the party will force a Commons vote on Wednesday demanding a “fair one nation deal” for areas facing Tier 3 restrictions.

The party said it will urge its MPs to back its motion demanding “the Government guarantees people faced with hardship who are subject to the Job Retention Scheme extension will receive at least 80% of their previous incomes”.

Sir Keir said: “The Conservatives have been treating local communities, particularly in the Midlands, North West and North East, and their leaders with contempt.

“This is not just a matter of fairness for people in Greater Manchester, but for people across the country who could find themselves in Tier 3 in the weeks ahead.

“Families and businesses will be deeply anxious that they might not be able to make ends meet under the Government’s wholly inadequate proposals.

“The Prime Minister and the Chancellor need to make good on their commitment to the British people to do whatever it takes to help us through this pandemic.

“We need a fair one nation deal that can help us through the second wave.

“I would urge all Conservative MPs, particularly those in areas of the country that are most affected by this, to vote with us tomorrow and force the Government’s hand.”
