LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Monday that he does not expect the government to make any changes to the lockdown measures currently in place until it is confident they can be made safely.

“We don’t expect to make any changes to the measures in place,” he said.

Raab, deputising for Prime Minister Boris Johnson who is recovering from COVID-19, told a daily press conference that people had stuck with the rules for lockdown over the long Easter weekend.
