VACCINES MINISTER CONGRATULATES BORIS JOHNSON ON WEDDING
Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi offered his congratulations to Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds following their wedding.
“It’s a great feeling as you come together and of course I think it’s a wonderful thing for both of them, that they have made their marriage vows to one another,” he told Sky News.
Mr Zahawi said the timing of the secret wedding should not send a signal that the further easing of lockdown measures earmarked for June 21 will not happen.
Put to him that the timing suggested that a larger wedding after June 21 was not on the cards, Mr Zahawi said: “I wouldn’t extrapolate anything from that.”
He added: “On June 14, we will set out very clearly, the data that we are continuing to gather from step three, which was on May 17, and then we’ll share that with the nation, as the Prime Minister has done in each and every step from step one, two and three and then of course, step four.”
