Here’s the evidence behind the Government’s decision on GM. People will have to draw their own conclusions on the rights/wrongs. What I can say is we’ll likely have a very strong case for Tier 2 in two weeks. I’ll be asking all GM MPs to join us in a strong cross-party appeal.

. tells Government is not levelling up with financial support packages - but levelling down: "How can the Isle of Wight in Tier 1 be getting the same amount of business support as Greater Manchester in Tier 3 - it's not fair"

I am talking about the whole country. A Tier 3 area in the Midlands or South will be treated just as unfairly.

I didn’t mention the North. I just mentioned Tiers 1, 2 and 3.

Places put into Tier 3 today will get no additional business support funding than those in Tier 1 or Tier 2. Can that possibly be fair?

Sources tell me no policy work was carried out on the £4bn levelling up fund before yesterday. Whitehall official: “They have taken aid and put it into a ribbon-cutting fund for marginals. This is as cynical as it looks."

The answer, Archie, is the national lockdown would have been much more effective if schools had been included. Instead, it hasn’t worked that well and that’s why most places will be in Tier 2 or Tier 3 tomorrow.

Unlike this Government, I couldn't turn my back on this local independent community pub . Good luck Debbie, John and all the regulars. Glad I could help.

I know there will be many people out there feeling very down tonight. I am sorry that we were not able to persuade the Government to do more to help. But the fight for fairness and inclusion goes on. We will continue to support you all the way.

Today must give some hope to 3m frozen out of support. Jobs, homes, businesses and lives are depending on it

Three million people excluded from the Chancellor’s support schemes will be hanging on his every word today. It’s no exaggeration to say jobs, homes, marriages and lives depend on what he’s got to say. Please, , listen to their cries for help and do the right thing.

This evening + and I heard the real accounts of some of the 3m people unfairly from support - Gov needs to do the right thing, recognise the contributions they have made and ensure fairness in its response to Covid

NEW: school attendance figures in England continue to slide. Now down to 82.9% across all schools on 19th November, down from 86% the week before. In secondary schools that figure was an especially low 78%. More than 1 in 5 secondary school students weren’t in school.
