MP urges people to stick to the rules and stay safe as Cumbria moves into Tier 2 restrictions

November 26, 2020 4:54 PM

Commenting on today's news that Cumbria will be in Tier 2 restrictions from December 2nd, local MP Tim Farron said: "News of more restrictions is never welcome, however we should take encouragement from the fact that we can see the light at the end of the tunnel with a vaccine just round the corner.

"Now is not the time to take our eye off the ball. Our communities have gone through bad times in the past whether it be Foot & Mouth or devastating floods - and together we'll make it through this one.

"In the meantime I'll continue to press the Government on supporting local jobs and businesses, especially those in the hospitality sector that will be affected by the visitor market drying up with most of the North of England being put in Tier 3."
