2 September 2021

On Tuesday 7 September, the COVID-19 Committee will hold a final evidence session on the long-term implications of the pandemic.

The Committee was established in June 2020 and has examined a range of different topics, including how the pandemic could have long-term consequences for towns and cities, for parents and families, and for the prevalence of digital technology and online service delivery.

As the Committee’s work comes to a close, members are holding a final evidence session to consider more broadly how the pandemic may impact the economic and societal wellbeing of the United Kingdom in the years ahead.


At 14.00, the Committee will hear evidence from:

  • Dr Stephen Davies, Head of Education, IEA
  • Professor Lord Richard Layard, Community Wellbeing Programme Co-Director, Centre for Economic Performance, LSE
  • Polly Mackenzie, Chief Executive, Demos
