Boris Johnson has rebuffed demands to relax social distancing restrictions to allow more people to attend weddings.

Speaking at Prime Minister’s Questions, Conservative Gagan Mohindra (South West Hertfordshire) said: “Would the Prime Minister consider changing the number of attendees from a blanket limit of 30 to a fairer system, which allows venues to hold a percentage – say 50% – of their usual licensed activity?

“This would enable many venues to bounce back and keep on their furloughed staff.”

Mr Johnson said he understood and appreciated the concerns raised by businesses facing restrictions.

But he added in the Commons: “The trouble is that in all these things there is an increase in the risk involved, an increase in the risk of contagion and we simply have to balance that risk with what we’re seeing now in the spread of the virus.

“So I must reluctantly say to (Mr Mohindra) that we will work as fast as possible to get our whole economy open, to take all these restrictions off.”

Mr Johnson said the best way to achieve this is for the country to work together to enforce social distancing, obey the rules, and take a test if they have symptoms.
