10:38 pm
something in a widespread way and that makes it confusing for passengers. and obviously if you just commute within a small area you will be familiar with the local rules but if you are chopping and changing and going between cities is quite difficult to keep up with the different types of guidance in each area. and what we saw last time we had different rules in different areas that got confusing. and it certainly is going to add to the confusion. certainly is going to add to the confusion-— certainly is going to add to the confusion. �* , ., ., ,, ., confusion. let's look at the ft. business _ confusion. let's look at the ft. business sapped _ confusion. let's look at the ft. business sapped by _ confusion. let's look at the ft. business sapped by staff - confusion. let's look at the ft. - business sapped by staff shortages as covid orders workers home. we are hearing that so many members of staff in the nhs are being told to go home to self—isolate because they come into contact with someone with covid. and it's now spreading to other businesses as well. yes. other businesses as well. yes, operations _ other businesses as well. yes, operations have _ other businesses as well. yes, operations have been -

10:44 pm
last election, but when you say leveling up it implies that the southeast remains static and government tried to recalibrate on that front and say it's the kind of everybody can benefit about this and takes the heat of the southeast. if people relocate to parts of the country, you ease the burden on the transport system and ease the pressure on the housing market. and so you will hear a bit about that tomorrow as well.— tomorrow as well. stay with telegraph- _ tomorrow as well. stay with telegraph. cars _ tomorrow as well. stay with telegraph. cars and - tomorrow as well. stay with telegraph. cars and flights | tomorrow as well. stay with l telegraph. cars and flights to tomorrow as well. stay with - telegraph. cars and flights to be hit with green taxes. and had to come in the end and if we are meant to meet our targets on time and we are hosting cop26, the climate change conference in glasgow in november. we have to have something to show the rest of the world that we are actually achieving. emir; to show the rest of the world that we are actually achieving. only so far ou we are actually achieving. only so far you can _ we are actually achieving. only so far you can go _ we are actually achieving. only so far you can go with _ we are actually achieving. only so far you can go with the _ we are actually achieving. only so far you can go with the care - we are actually achieving. only so far you can go with the care and i far you can go with the care and eventually you have to apply the stick in these kinds of scenarios.
