The Prime Minister told a Downing Street press briefing: "We think that these changes are fully justified by the data, which shows that we are meeting our four tests for easing the lockdown. "But - and you know I'm going to say this - we can't be complacent. "We can see the waves of sickness afflicting other countries and we've seen how this story goes. "We still don't know how strong the vaccine shield will be when cases begin to rise, as I'm afraid they will, and that's why we're saying please get your vaccine or your second dose when the turn comes. "And please use the free NHS tests even if you don't feel ill."
