Wales This Week: Coronavirus - Our Changing Nation episode 12

While most of us may be looking forward to lockdown easing, there are some for whom the easing of restrictions means they may end up back on the streets. The pandemic has meant hundreds of homeless people across Wales have been housed in temporary accommodation and charities are calling for the emergency measures to be made permanent. Owain Phillips asks Housing Minister Julie James why it seems it's taken a global pandemic for the Welsh Government to tackle homelessness.

Elsewhere, with pubs and restaurants due to open in England from July 4th, the hospitality sector here says without guidance from the Welsh Government soon on how they can reopen, many will remain closed. Shauna Guinn from Hangfire Southern Restaurant in Barry tells us what it's been like for her business during the pandemic.
