LONDON, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Britain's government is hoping
that it can meet its target for rolling out coronavirus vaccines
and be able to consider easing lockdown restrictions by March,
foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Sunday.

"What we want to do is get out of this national lockdown as
soon as possible," Raab told Sky News television.

"By early spring, hopefully by March, we'll be in a position
to make those decisions. I think it's right to say we won't do
it all in one big bang. As we phase out the national lockdown, I
think we'll end up phasing through a tiered approach."
