CONSERVATIVE MPs say putting London under Tier 3 restrictions will be “catastrophic”- just days before England’s tiered system is due to be reviewed.
In a letter, MPs have asked PM Boris Johnson to not put the entire capital under the strictest Covid restrictions.
They argue that it would hurt “people across the nation” who rely on the “wealth and prosperity generated by our great city”, the Mail on Sunday reported.
They reportedly said the decision will cause “untold damage”.
It comes as London is on the brink of being plunged into Tier 3 lockdown after coronavirus infections in the capital became the highest in England.
All the city’s boroughs were placed in Tier 2 when the one-month lockdown in England ended on December 2.
