During a live interview with LBC’s Nick Ferrari, the Labour Party leader faced a pre-recorded question from Mr Johnson regarding the safety of British schools. The Prime Minister called for Sir Keir Starmer to admit it was safe for children to return and that all children should be in school in September.
Mr Johnson said: “Could you possibly just say once and for all that schools are safe to go back to and that the teaching unions should drop their opposition and allow every pupil that can to go back to school now?
“Every pupil should be back in school in September, no ifs, no buts, just say it!”
The Labour Party leader responded: “
Yes schools are safe for some children to go back to at the moment.
“My own children are in school and I want all children back to school in September.”
