‘We cannot have another national lockdown’ – CBI president


With Covid-19 cases thought to be doubling every seven days and the possibility of stricter regulations nationwide, joining us are three experts from science, economics and business to discuss what might happen in the next few weeks.

Lord Bilimoria is the president of the CBI and founder of Cobra Beer, Torsten Bell is the chief executive of the Resolution Foundation think tank, and Professor Sir Mark Walport was the government chief scientific adviser from 2013 until 2017 and more recently chief executive of UK Research and Innovation, helping to fund research into tests, treatments and vaccines for Covid-19.
