The Leader of Buckinghamshire Council Leader, Martin Tett, said: ‘The council will be working with its Members of Parliament, the Buckinghamshire NHS and local business organisations to understand the implications for our residents, our businesses and people’s health. We will advise more in due course.
Can I thank everyone in Buckinghamshire for their continued support and for following the rules, not only over the last month in lockdown but since the pandemic started.‘
