England will move into a period without legal restrictions where the public will have to exercise “personal responsibility” including on face masks, the housing secretary has said.
Robert Jenrick told the BBC’s Andrew Marr people would “come to different conclusions” over masks, but he trusted people “to exercise good judgement”.
All legal restrictions are expected to be lifted in England on 19 July.
The Scottish government said there would be an “ongoing need” for masks.
