10th May 21 12:06 pm

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to address the nation later today and is expected to say that the UK is in a “good position” to travel in unlocking Britain.

The Mental Health Minister, Nadine Dorris told Sky News, “We are on the roadmap, we are still very cautious, we are concerned that we don’t ease restrictions too quickly and that we do this the way it is planned.”

She was asked if there will be different rules for people of different age groups as most under the age of 40 have not had their jabs.

Dorries added that “We do have to be cautious, the last thing anybody wants is to ever, ever be in a position that we’ve been in over the last year.”

She said the government are very “determined to beat this virus” and the roadmap is oncourse, but she cautioned there must be “balance with optimism.”

Dorries was asked if the government are concerned over a surge in infections.

She said, “There are variants of concern in the UK which is the reason why we are still on the roadmap and we are still ensuring that we measure the data between each phase of easing of lockdown, so it’s something we need to be careful about.”

Dorries added that once the UK has reopened “we will see the impact that has on the data and on the figures and if that’s okay the roadmap is all set out.”

Dorries told Sky News that we are in a “really good position,” and added that “we all want to go back on holidays, people want to travel and see family abroad and have holidays abroad.”

She added, “The easing of travel is ensuring that we keep variants of concern under control, we can surge test door to door where we need to and keeping people safe, and making sure as a country we can move out cautiously.”
