Health Protection (Coronavirus, Local COVID-19 Alert Level) (Very High) (England) Regulations 2020 Lord Bethell moved that the Regulations laid before the House on 12 October 2020 be approved. Then Lord Robathan moved, as an amendment to the motion, at end to insert “but that this House regrets the failure of Her Majesty’s Government to provide the scientific evidence used to inform these Regulations and other restrictions put in place to address the COVID-19 pandemic, including the imposition of a 10.00pm curfew on businesses.” After debate, the amendment was withdrawn. Then Baroness Thornton moved, as an amendment to the motion in the name of Lord Bethell, at end to insert “but that this House regrets that Her Majesty’s Government have failed to implement an effective test, trace and isolate regime for COVID-19 and calls upon Her Majesty’s Government to give all local authorities the resources they need to operate an effective contact tracing system in their areas; furthermore notes that these measures may not be sufficient to address the impact of the COVID-19 virus; and calls upon Her Majesty’s Government to provide the support local businesses and communities need to have confidence in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.” The amendment was agreed to (see division 2). Then the original motion, as amended, was agreed to.
