Frustratingly, I'd put in to ask the Health Secretary a question after his Statement, but was not on the final list. I'd wanted to make my view very clear indeed that any delay to Freedom Day on 21 June was unacceptable. Our liberty must now be returned to us, although it shocks me that, with all the data going the right way, the Government appears to want to keep us restricted. It's a nonsense. And, while on the pandemic, all adults aged 25 to 29 in England who have not yet had a Covid vaccine will be able to book their first dose from tomorrow. The move brings the UK a step closer to meeting the target to offer all adults a vaccine by the end of July. Matt Hancock said vaccines were breaking the link between infections, hospitalisations and deaths. But he said it was too soon to decide the next steps of unlocking. That's because Covid cases are rising again, linked to a new variant first found in India, also known as B.1.617.2 or Delta. My answer to that is that we will have to live with one variant after another for many years to come and, if we keep dithering every time one appears, we'll never get out lives back. Unhelpfully, a small group of Conservative colleagues tried to strap an amendment to a Bill being debated today which would force the PM to meet the 0.7 per cent GDP target, which is to be reduced to 0,5 per cent due to the unprecedented financial situation we are in. Fortunately, we have a Speaker with integrity, who ruled the amendment inadmissible because it was out of scope of the Bill, and quite right, too. However, Lindsay Hoyle called on ministers to give MPs an "effective" vote on the issue. The arbitrary 0.7 per cent target was set by David Cameron, which was a ludicrous thing to do. But, like so many politicians, they appear fixed on setting targets, which are either unachievable or nonsensical. Don't get me wrong, I totally support foreign aid, but this is taxpayers' money and it must be spent wisely and carefully. And, right now, with the economy in a mess and our debt rising, it's time to apply the saying 'charity starts at home'. Spent some time during the day trying to help the Tank Museum and the Etches Collection in Kimmeridge. After a useful virtual meeting recently, they had lobbied hard for DCMS to tweak the rules to help them secure funding. I was more than happy to help and drafted a letter to Oliver Dowden and will try to speak to one of his advisers who helpfully tried to call me. Depressingly, I read in the local paper there had been more ASB in Weymouth over the weekend. Why on earth do a minority want to ruin their own home town, a stunning seaside resort with so much to offer. I have spent some time working with the police and council to see what more can be done. Both have been very accommodating and the police are doing their level best to combat this scourge.
