HOLIDAYS IN WALES NOT ON THE CARDS FOR EASTER

People in England will not be able to holiday in Wales when self-contained accommodation reopens at Easter, First Minister Mark Drakeford has said.

Mr Drakeford told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that he hoped tourism would be open to people outside of Wales by the summer if the coronavirus situation continued to improve.

“At Easter time, Welsh people will be able to travel for holidays over Easter within Wales, and to self-contained accommodation,” Mr Drakeford said.

“The rules in England will not permit that. The Prime Minister’s road map says that for the weeks after March 29, people should minimise travel, there are to be no holidays, and people won’t be allowed to stay away from home overnight.

“If it won’t be safe to stay overnight in England, then obviously it would not be safe for people to travel into Wales.”
