During COVID-19 Update debate in the House of Commons on 27 January 2021, All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf Chair, North Warwickshire MP, Craig Tracey asked the Prime Minister the following question:
The rollout of the vaccine has been an undoubted success for the government, but It brings us to a point where people now want to understand the path ahead to give them something to aim towards. I welcome the clarity the Prime Minster has given today on school but in the coming days can he also give a clear route map which sends out the potential for further easing of restrictions such as when outdoor exercise facilities such as golf courses can resume, hospitality events can restart, and our high streets can reopen to reassure people that there is light at the end of the tunnel and that we will shortly realise some of the benefits for the incredible sacrifices they have had to make over recent months.
The Prime Minister replied:
My honourable friend is entirely right in what he asks for and I will be supplying, I hope, exactly that. He will recall last year how we set out a series of dates by which the earliest we hoped to do certain things. He will recall July 4th, I think, for opening hospitality. I hope that in the course of the next few weeks, we will be able to populate the diary ahead with some more milestones, some more assumptions, about what we may be able to give reassurance to him, to businesses in his constituency, to all of us.
