BBC Breakfast saw Naga Munchetty on the sofa alongside Charlie Stayt this morning and throughout the show, the pair were joined by a range of guests. One key topic of this morning’s edition was the introduction of face masks becoming compulsory in shops and other outlets such as takeaways. MP Helen Whately was on the programme to clarify the facts about what this would mean for members of the public but struggled to explain how the new rule would be enforced across the UK.
Rules have changed in England meaning across the country people will now have to wear face masks in shops.
However there has been some confusion over the new rules as it was explained masks do not have to be worn if customers plan on eating in cafes and restaurants rather than simply picking up food to take out.
Health and Social Care Minister Whatley was joined Munchetty today to explain in more detail when and wear the masks would have to be worn.
But when Munchetty probed her on how the new rules would be enforced, the minister struggled to answer the question, forcing the host to press her for an answer three times.
