Rejected petition Ease the restrictive lockdowns in Wales that are causing hardship and misery for people & businesses

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, restrictions have been introduced in the United Kingdom to attempt to contain the disease. The restrictions in Wales, know colloquially as 'local lockdowns' have been harsher than in England with curtailments on people's movement & travel, and in one case, Llanelli, people are restricted to the town itself. This is having serious incidental effect on people and is in itself causing harm, and simply replaces the harm of the virus with harm to mental health.
