PM Boris Johnson is expected to address the nation tomorrow at 7pm to unveil his roadmap out of lockdown, the Sunday Times reports.

Mr Johnson has spent the past week considering data on deaths, cases, hospital admissions and the effect of the vaccine rollout, and will unveil his blueprint to Parliament on Monday.

He is set to first address MPs in the House of Commons at 3.30pm tomorrow to explain his approach, according to the Sunday Times.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock declined this morning to comment on the details of the road map, which has yet to be signed off by Cabinet ministers.

Matt Hancock said Boris Johnson would address the reopening of schools on Monday and told Sky: “We have set out very clearly that getting schools back is the top priority amongst all the different things that we want to do to get life back to normal.”

Mr Hancock went on: “Whilst we want to set out a road map which gives people guidance in terms of how we think we will be able to do this, we also absolutely will be vigilant to the data on the way.

“We have seen throughout this pandemic that there have been moments when things haven’t got as we expected – for instance, when the new variant was first discovered in Kent.”

He said there was evidence that cases of new variants in the UK, such as those discovered in Brazil and South Africa, were falling – as he suggested new border restrictions and enhanced contact tracing are working.
