It comes as First Minister Mark Drakeford lifted a raft of lockdown measures at yesterday's daily press briefing.

From Monday, non-essential shops can re-open and people can play on outdoor courts.

An announcement on creating "bubbles" with other households in Wales could be made by July 9, the First Minister added.

He said it is "not yet possible to make an announcement on extended households” as part of this review “alongside everything else”.

In England and Northern Ireland, the support bubbles were introduced last week.

Mr Drakeford said the issue is still being considered in Wales.
