Coronavirus: MPs promised vote on new rules 'wherever possible'

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has promised MPs votes "wherever possible" on England or UK-wide coronavirus rules before they come into force.

But he warned that some urgent regulations could not be held up.

It follows concern from Tory MPs over a lack of parliamentary scrutiny, while the Commons Speaker warned the government against treating Parliament with "contempt".

MPs voted to extend the coronavirus powers by 330 votes to 24.
