Responding to the Prime Minister’s announcement that cafes, bars, and restaurants were to close last night, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:
“People will understandably be alarmed at these measures, but at this difficult time people must pull together.
“These measures are being put in place in order to protect the most vulnerable in our society. I urge everyone to closely follow the advice.
“Nonetheless, the Prime Minister must also understand the implications for the mental health and wellbeing of people right across our country. He must come forward with clear measures to provide the well-being support people need.”
