No date has been set for when quarantine hotels will be made mandatory in England, but the health secretary promised “strong” action at the border to protect against new coronavirus variants.

Matt Hancock could not say when the government-provided accommodation for residents and nationals arriving from 30 countries will open, after the ambition was announced last week.

Pressed on the issue multiple times by Sky News, he said, “that will be set out shortly” and that he was “working on these proposals” – but declined to give a date.

7 Things Parents Can Expect
