During an interview on Sky News Ms Burley challenged Oliver Dowden over the current lockdown rules. The Sky News host asked why people can go to the pub but children cannot practice with their orchestras.
Ms Burley said: “People can’t play together yet but other people can get drunk in Soho last Saturday night.
“They say it is not fair, why is it fair?”
Mr Dowden replied: “First of all in Soho and across the country people should be socially distancing when they are in pubs and I think most of the British people have followed that advice.
“Obviously there are some exceptions and I hope those remain exceptionally limited.

The importance of social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic
“In terms of what we do for orchestras, I know this is a real challenge and that is why we are working with experts.
“It is a challenge because if you’re signing you are projecting a lot, with some instruments you are also projecting.”
He continued: “That is why Public Health England and others have concerns about it.
“I know this requires us to do more work in this area, that is why I am looking at research in this space to see if we can do it as soon as possible.
“I want to overcome all these barriers.”
