Parliament will debate coronavirus measures, says UK PM Johnson

LONDON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday parliament would be able to consider and debate the new measures put in place to tackle an increase in COVID-19 cases early next week.

Trying to head off criticism from lawmakers, including some in his Conservative Party, that the government is introducing restrictions without consultation, Johnson told them: “Parliament should and will debate these issues and ... will make time early next week ... for a full debate on these measures.” (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper; editing by Stephen Addison)
