Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
22nd Jun 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether rules on shared facilities that have been in operation throughout the lockdown for sites such as service stations will be different for camping sites with shared facilities once those sites reopen.

From 4 July, people can travel to holiday accommodation - including camping sites - for overnight stays in England.

Campsites will be allowed to reopen shared showering and toilet facilities. These facilities, as well as campsites’ waste and water points, should adhere to all Government guidance on cleaning and social distancing to minimise the risk of transmission.

This marks Step 3 in the Government’s recovery strategy. All decisions have been and will continue to be based on scientific evidence and public health assessments.

To ask Her Majesty's Government on what evidence they base any decision to allow any site with shared facilities to reopen; how they differentiate between sectors when deciding which businesses may reopen; and whether they have found any scientific reason which means that the reopening of camping sites with shared facilities should be treated in a separate manner to any other part of the hospitality sector.

From 4 July, people can travel to holiday accommodation - including camping sites - for overnight stays in England.

Campsites will be allowed to reopen shared showering and toilet facilities. These facilities, as well as campsites’ waste and water points, should adhere to all Government guidance on cleaning and social distancing to minimise the risk of transmission.

To ask Her Majesty's Government which regulatory body is responsible for the changes needed to allow dental surgeries to operate in a COVID-19 safe environment, including how patients are booked into surgeries, instructed to behave whilst attending a general dental practice and the layout of waiting areas and spacing of waiting room chairs.

Public Health England (PHE) is responsible for and has published guidance on infection control protocols (IPC) and guidance on how health care professionals should wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. A copy of PHE’s published guidance COVID-19: infection prevention and control guidance is attached.

NHS England and NHS Improvement announced on 28 May that National Health Service dentistry outside urgent care centres will begin to restart from 8 June with the aim of increasing levels of service as fast as is compatible with maximising safety. The letter outlines that practices need to consider the PHE guidance on IPC and PPE in order to deliver care in a way that is safe, operationally deliverable and allows dental practices flexibility to do what is best for patients and their teams. A copy of the letter is attached.
