The Government will study making the curfew earlier
The Minister of Transport and Mobility, José Luis Ábalos, has said today (Wednesday) that "there is no problem" in advancing the time of the curfew to 8.00pm if it is agreed "between all autonomous communities", because that is "what matters", and that the Central Government will study the feasibility of it.
Just a few hours before the meeting of the Inter-territorial Health Council, which will address this matter later this afternoon, the minister has requested that all the autonomous governments stick to the agreed regulations, because if "they try to impose their own outside these agreements, then they have no meaning ”and “are not worth doing”.
Apart from this, he said that "if there is an agreement, there is no problem" and that the decree of the state of alarm establishes that “many of the measures may be modified by the Government without the need to go to Congress, therefore there is no drama in passing it.”
He has also argued that the decree set the current time period for the application of the curfew precisely "to give room for the controversy that existed originally about the hours" and when at that point, no one wanted it to start at eight in the evening.

"The difference” he said, “is not in what is proposed, but how it is proposed," referring to the statements of the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, in which she rejected advance of the curfew stating that they don’t want it "to further ruin the hospitality industry in Spain."
"It is still frivolous, especially when we are talking about people's lives," said the minister.
