NATIONAL NEWS ROUNDUP: Government defends NHS pay & more royal revelations…

 

The government has come under fire after calling for an NHS pay increase in England to be restricted to 1%.

Health Minister Nadine Dorries has explained the rise - which unions have said that due to inflation, would amount to a pay cut - is "the most" the government can afford. Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer has called it an "insult to our NHS heroes".

The war of words continues to play out in the media ahead of Harry and Meghan's much anticipated Oprah interview on Monday night in the UK. It follows reports from a senior royal source that Meghan Markle blamed Kate and Camilla for leaks to the press during her time as a senior royal.

Cyprus is to welcome British tourists who've been vaccinated from May. However UK government travel restrictions will remain in place - with 17th May the earliest date currently set out for foreign leisure travel.
