A good run in the morning and then into the Commons. The Chamber hosted two opposition day debates and of course PMQs. The PM performed well, making Starmer look like an opportunist, which he is. Dealt with many constituency matters before heading out to the Green for an interview with ITV SW. The man who has screamed abuse at us for more than three years soon appeared with a small entourage. He was quiet until I walked away, when the abuse began. I paid no attention. We are all used to this intolerant individual. Early afternoon I took a call from a constituent who runs an outdoor education centre in my constituency. She explained that they appear to have been left out of government announcements, with schools refusing to send their children to them. I don't understand why because you would have thought that these centres are probably one of the safest places a child can be. A number of MPs are now working together to persuade the Department for Education to look at this urgently. At 1615 I walked to Westminster Hall to attend a 60-minute debate on rural productivity. I am always happy to promote my constituency's needs and my short two minute speech is on my website. As the debate was delayed due to a vote, I sadly missed an update from the campaign group F40, which, along with MPs like myself, is trying to get fairer funding for schools that have historically lost out. A final vote at 1900. Over in Northern Ireland (NI), schools will close from Monday and pubs and restaurants face new restrictions from Friday evening, in a bid to stem cases of Covid-19. The moves are among new restrictions being imposed by the executive. It comes as NI's Department of Health recorded a further 1,217 cases and four more deaths with Covid-19 on Wednesday. Back in England, the PM said the new three-tier system of regional Covid-19 restrictions "is the right way forward". Mr Johnson told the House of Commons the policy "can bring down the virus" but that he did not rule out going further. Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer again called for a "circuit-breaker" - a short, limited lockdown in England to bring the virus under control. Meanwhile, people in parts of the UK with high rates of Covid-19 will be banned from travelling to Wales under plans announced by Wales' first minister. Mark Drakeford said he would go ahead if the PM did not impose travel restrictions in England. It is expected the ban will cover all of Northern Ireland, England's tier two and three areas and the Scottish central belt. The UK government said the decision was "disappointing".
