Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer told Boris Johnson in the House of Commons on Monday that he is “deeply sceptical” over the new three tier system.

Johnson introduced a new three tier system to MPs, which will divide England into “very high,” “high” or “medium” local “Covid alert” regions.

The Prime Minister said, “There are those who say we should go back into a full national lockdown of indefinite duration, closing schools and businesses, telling people again to stay at home as we did in March.

“Once again shattering our lives and our society.”

Responding to Johnson’s announcement, Sir Keir said that Labour has “tried to give the prime minister the benefit of the doubt” over his decisions thus far. 

He accused Johnson of being “several steps behind the curve and running to catch up.”

Sir Keir will consider the new package of measures Johnson has introduce and he will look at the small print and discuss with local leaders. 

The Labour leader warned Johnson and said, “But I have to say I’m now deeply sceptical,” as local measures imposed so far “have not worked.”
