Children: Separated People
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment he has made of the potential merits on exempting children in a joint custody arrangement with one parent overseas from self-isolating for 14 days after arriving back in the UK.

Where children travel into the UK and need to move between parents’ UK homes as part of a shared custody agreement, this is permitted as long as they continue to self-isolate.

In all other cases everyone bar a short list of exempted people arriving into the UK should self-isolate in their accommodation for 14 days.
