... but much if not all of it announced on Today, and on other news programmes this morning. I have to say Nadhim Zahawi, for all the good work done on getting vacines out, did not fill me with confidence particularly on the return of all pupils to schools in one fell swoop.

The four tests will be:

*The progress of the vaccination programme.
*That data continues to show that the vaccines are effective in bringing down deaths and hospitalisations.
*That cases are not going to overwhelm the NHS
*That new variants do not change the government's calculation as far as the risks of reopening are concerned.
