From Nine To Noon, 9:51 am on 12 March 2020

UK correspondent Hugo Gye joins Kathryn to talk about how the UK is handling its Covid-19 response, stopping short of banning mass gatherings or advising people to work at home. He'll look at new Chancellor Rishi Sunak's first Budget and the £30bn stimulus package designed to combat any downturn from coronavirus. The first round of UK-EU talks ended last week in disagreement, what hope for next week's second round and 38 Conservatives voted against the Prime Minister's plans to allow Huawei access to Britain's 5G infrastructure. Hugo Gye is Deputy Political Editor of The i Paper, based in the House of Commons press gallery.
