The remarks follow reports corroborated by Health Secretary Matt Hancock that the government was considering vaccination as a "condition of deployment" in care homes and other healthcare settings, contrary to the prime minister's December remarks that it "is no part of our culture or our ambition in this country to make vaccines mandatory".

"As things stand, I can see absolutely nothing in the data to dissuade me from continuing along our roadmap to freedom, unlocking our economy and getting back to the life we love", Mr Johnson said in a speech to the Conservative spring conference.

Speaking to the Liaison Committee of senior MPs, Johnson indicated that the government will not enforce this action, but it's a policy that landlords might want to do. "It may be up to the landlord". "It doesn't seem to me to be irresponsible at all - far from it, wholly responsible - for care home companies to think of requiring vaccination", Prime Minister Johnson said, according to comments reported by The Times. For example, doctors had to be vaccinated against hepatitis B, he said. They'll be able to open their indoor services in May.

During a visit to a nursery in Greenford, west London, on Thursday, Mr Johnson told broadcasters: 'I need to get a haircut soon, I do need a haircut.

Draconian police powers under Schedule 21, which have a 100% unlawful prosecution record, must be considered redundant to say the very least. Earlier this month, Downing Street officials were reported to be talking to Brussels about the scheme.

The prime minister's spokesman said: "The Coronavirus Act needs a renewal vote every six months, that will mean this is the second such vote".
