The Prime Minister's deputy says it would be irresponsible for the government to indicate when the Covid-19 lockdown is likely to end.
Dominic Raab has extended the coronavirus restrictions for at least three weeks - saying doing otherwise could damage both public health and the economy.
Labour's supported the move but says ministers should explain how they plan to exit from the current arrangements.
A further 861 people with Covid-19 have died in UK hospitals - bringing the total to 13,729.
Meanwhile, Sadiq Khan has called on the Government to make face masks compulsory on public transport.
