Conservative MPs have called on the government to publish more evidence to justify areas of England being put into the higher tiers of Covid restrictions when the lockdown ends next week.

Several of them have criticised the introduction of the stricter measures.

No 10 said on Thursday that most of England would go into the two highest tiers when lockdown ends on 2 December.

The Covid Recovery Group, made up of Tory backbenchers, said it was “authoritarianism at work”.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the move was “necessary to protect the NHS and keep the virus under control”.

The government has promised to publish an impact assessment early next week before MPs get a chance to vote on the new rules on Tuesday.
