Boris Johnson is facing Prime Minister’s Questions in the wake of the Christmas party scandal and rumours that Plan B Covid measures are set to be introduced in England.

Reports from the Financial Times suggest the Prime Minister is planning to introduce Plan B restrictions which will include vaccine passports for larger venues and an instruction to work from home.

The move shows a growing concern about the rise in Omicron variant cases amid a Christmas party scandal relating to December 18 last year.

Reports suggest new restrictions could be announced in a press conference as early as Wednesday before the new restrictions being discussed in Parliament on Thursday.

Ahead of that, Mr Johnson faces PMQ’s where he is expected to face a grilling over the Christmas Party scandal.

Leaked footage from ITV showed his aides joking about a festive gathering.

The Conservative Party leader will be under the spotlight at Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday, with his opposite number likely to grill Mr Johnson for a second week running about what happened in Downing Street on December 18 last year.

Sir Keir Starmer, leader of the Labour Party, said the leaked video of senior aides laughing about a “cheese and wine” evening indicates that the Prime Minister has “not been straight” about claims of a festive get-together, with some reports claiming it featured alcohol and “secret Santa” present-giving.
