Charlie Stayt cuts off Education Minister in school reopening row ‘Not hypothetical!’

Stayt asked Gibb: “People would find it odd if a pub was still open and a school was shut… can you be categorical that would not be the case?”

He replied: “Well, you have to look at these things on a local basis, how we’re now tackling virus. 

“We now have much greater granular detail on where we are seeing spikes in the greater infection and then we take action. We are very clear, all children will be going to school in September…”

But Stayt hit back: “I’m still not quite clear…” before calling the idea of pubs being open ahead of schools “inconceivable.”
