Schools should reopen after half term and not be delayed until March, MPs say

Boris Johnson is being pressed to open schools after half term in a push to get kids back into the class room.

The Prime Minister has said schools will not be reopening before March 8, but several Tory MPs and scientists are now pressing him to reopen them earlier, on February 22.

At least 18 Conservative MPs are said to have backed a campaign called UsforThem, which is calling for the reopening of schools earlier.
