UK Health Secretary Set to Change Social Distancing Rule.

The UK government may announce a change to the current two-metre social distancing rule this week, according to health secretary Matt Hancock, as the government looks to ease lockdown measures further. According to reports, the two-metre rule is set to be reduced on July 4, allowing pubs and restaurants to re-open, providing a much needed boost for the UK economy. The health secretary, speaking to the BBC over the weekend, said that while he hoped to reduce the distance, the government would remain ‘guided by science’ to prevent any resurgence of the COVID-19 virus.

The latest CBI industrial trends survey (June) will be released at 11:00 UK and while this indicator is not normally a market mover, it is a closely watched indicator of business conditions. Any bounce back from last month’s dire reading of -62 may help underpin Sterling.
