Schools ()
"Parents, children and teaching staff are worried about the threat of coronavirus and need reassurances ahead of reopening schools.

"Liberal Democrats have demanded from the outset that the Government publish the scientific evidence behind their decision to reopen schools. Yet, with just ten days before schools are due to open, parents and teachers are still being kept in the dark.

"This announcement is so long overdue. We all want to get children back in school but the public need answers, particularly the likely impact on the infection rate of these measures."
