Boris Johnson has confirmed that Greater Manchester will receive a £60 million funding support package to implement Tier 3 lockdown measures.
At PMQs the Prime Minister said the money would be distributed among the region's boroughs, despite talks between ministers and local leaders breaking down on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Mr Johnson also used PMQs to take a swipe at Sadiq Khan, claiming that the London mayor had "effectively bankrupted" the capital's transport network. It comes as Transport for London seeks a £4.9 billion Covid bail-out, with reports that ministers have threatened to take direct control of TfL if conditions are not met.
