Commenting on the end of the five-mile travel restriction in Wales, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Covid-19 Recovery, Darren Millar MS, said:
“People across Wales have given up significant freedoms during the course of the coronavirus pandemic but today they are getting an important one back.
"The Welsh Government was wrong to impose an arbitrary five-mile travel restriction on its citizens. Such a limit was unnecessary, undermined people's mental health and personal relationships, and made the reopening of many businesses unviable.
"I'm glad that the First Minister has finally caved in to our pressure and that these travel restrictions are now being lifted.
"The scrapping of this cruel rule can't come too soon for those who will finally be able to see their loved ones for the first time in months, and for those who can finally reopen their businesses and get our economy moving again."
