Ahead of PMQs, Boris Johnson apologised to businesses for the "nightmare of the Covid world" and insisted that England's second national lockdown will end on 2 December, APA reports citing BBC.

In a pre-recorded speech to the Confederation of British Industry conference, the prime minister said he was "full of admiration" for the "determination" businesses had shown through the pandemic.

"I want to thank you for the heroic efforts you've made to look after your employees, to make your premises Covid-secure, putting in Perspex screens, all the trouble you've gone to in complying with the kinds of diktats that I never believed we would have to impose which, I assure you, go completely against every free-market instinct I possess," he said.

"And, believe me, we will end these autumn measures on December 2 when they expire."
