Opposition MPs and unions have accused Boris Johnson of misleading Parliament and the public over workplace health and safety inspections when he unveiled the easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions in England, which saw millions begin to return to work last Wednesday.

Despite claiming spot inspections of workplaces such as building sites, manufacturing plants and food outlets will be taking place, the Prime Minister’s words are now being questioned after i discovered the Health and Safety Executive is not carrying out inspections and has no confirmed date to restart them. The HSE suspended inspections on safety grounds in late March.
