    Tell us if you think lockdown easing should go ahead as planned on June 21

    The last of the government's coronavirus lockdown restrictions across England were set to ease on Monday, June 21.

    But with just days to go, whether they will be lifted or not is still up for discussion.

    June 21 was the last stage of the government's four stage lifting of lockdown restrictions, which they have said we will not be returning to.

    We want to know what Mirror readers think and whether they think the government is making the right choice for the country.

    So we are asking Mirror readers if they think June 21 is the right day – or would a slight delay or even longer be better for everyone.

    Boris Johnson will announce on Monday, June 14 whether the final remaining restrictions will be lifted.

    The Government had hoped to remove “all legal limits on social contact” meaning there would no longer be restrictions on how many people you can meet, either indoors or outdoors.

    However, some social distancing rules may remain in place, and the wearing of masks may still be mandatory in some public places.

    Nightclubs and music venues were also set to reopen and larger events were also set to be allowed to resume without limited crowds.

    The government previously said: “This will be subject to the results of a scientific events research programme to test the outcome of certain pilot events through the spring and summer, where we will trial the use of testing and other techniques to cut the risk of infection."

    It is reported that a two-week delay – until Monday, July 5, is being looked at by ministers.

    Speaking earlier this week the Prime Minister said: “On Monday… we’ll have a look at where we are.

    "I think what everybody can see very clearly is that cases are going up, and in some cases hospitalisations are going up.”

    And health secretary Matt Hancock said the Delta variant is having a “very significant” impact.

    He added that the government was “absolutely open” to delaying the unlocking “if that’s what needs to happen”.
