Mrs Pam Cameron (Deputy Chairperson)

Ms Marian McKeever, Department of Health

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 20) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020

The Acting Chairperson (Ms Bradshaw): This statutory rule amends the requirement for review of these regulations, amends the period a person must wait before forming a new linked household from 14 to 10 days, permits a supermarket to use any till or checkout aisle for intoxicating liquor off-sales, and makes technical amendments to permit the continued operation of business financial support schemes.

Have members any further issues that they wish to raise in connection with this statutory rule? If not, may I ask members to agree formally that the Committee for Health has considered statutory rule 2020/335, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 20) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020, and recommends that it be confirmed by the Assembly? Are we agreed?

Members indicated assent.
