If they are incapable of getting to a vaccination centre we will find ways of ensuring that everybody gets vaccinated.

On progress, the detail of the plan announced two days ago shows the various measures that open up from 12 April, 19 April and 26 April and the things that will be considered for May. I take the Deputy's point, and some European countries have said that certain things will be possible after specific age groups are vaccinated, but we are keeping the situation under close review particularly in light of the B.1.1.7 variant and the surges that are happening all over Europe now. The road map is broadly in line with vaccination down through the age groups and as we significantly reduce the risk profile more and more options become available to open up.
