Coronavirus latest -BORIS Johnson has promised the Tiers will only last for 2 months for now and to make them more local in a bid to quell a potential 100-strong Tory rebellion today.
The PM opened a crunch debate in the House of Commons on Tuesday as he desperately tried to woo his backbenchers to back his toughened up Tiers plan.
The PM is setting out major concessions to MPs to try and persuade them to back the Government tonight in a vote at around 7pm.
He promised that he would be looking at a more local tiers system in future - to try and see some of them off.
He told MPs: "We do want to be as granular as possible to reflect the reality of the epidemic.
"As we go forward and I mean this v seriously the gov will look at how we can reflect as closely as possible what is happening on the ground for local people, at the human geography and spread of the pandemic."
And he vowed that the Tiers would only continue past February 2nd if MPs vote for them.
He also offered 30,000 drinks-only pubs an extra £1,000 grant to try and help them make ends - as revealed by The Sun this morning - "recognising how hard they've been hit by this in what is their typically busiest month".
But already they have said it is a drop in the ocean to what they need to survive.
