Britain's transport secretary, Grant Shapps, has said that he is hopeful that Britons will have summer holidays abroad soon. “I am hopeful, but as with everything to do with the virus, you can’t say for certain”, he added. “There are a lot of issues that we need to work around but I am working with International partners, both governments and organisations, to try to make it happen. We can’t provide cast iron guarantees on it.”
