More good news. Government figures show that more than four million people in the UK have received their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine. People in their 70s and the clinically extremely vulnerable in England are now among those being offered the vaccine. However, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said UK data showed more people were in hospital with Covid than ever - and urged people to follow lockdown rules. He said: "Do not blow it now. We are on the route out. We have to stick at it." Trying to help a defence company with an MOD contract. NORCO has a facility at Winfrith and they are waiting to hear from the MOD. A bit of cage rattling won't do any harm. As expected, Labour weaponised the debate about extending UC's extra £20-a-week. Labour called for the uplift in UC, introduced due the Covid pandemic, to be extended beyond the current end date of 31 March. A non-binding Labour motion backing an extension passed by 278 votes to none. We all abstained. Inevitably, it was portrayed that Labour cares for the less well off and we don't. Nothing could be further from the truth and the Chancellor has been spending mind-boggling amounts of money in propping up the economy and helping the less well off. We have a Budget in March and that is the time to look at this issue, not least when we know more about the effectiveness of the vaccine and whether the currrent restrictions are lifted and to what extent. Over in Wales, the health minister denied Covid-19 vaccines were being held back. Vaughan Gething was reacting to First Minister Mark Drakeford's comments that the supply had to last until February to prevent "vaccinators standing around with nothing to do". In a later tweet, Mr Drakeford said "nobody is holding back vaccines", but the Conservative ex-Welsh secretary said his comments were "astonishing". Mr Gething insists vaccines are being rolled out "as quickly as possible".
