France enters third lockdown – Nick Thomas-Symonds responds

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the rise in cases and variants of coronavirus in France, said:

“France’s decision to enter a third lockdown makes it even more urgent that the Conservatives introduce stricter border controls.

“It’s reckless and unacceptable for only one percent of international arrivals to quarantine in a hotel.

“I urge Conservative ministers to urgently secure our borders by introducing a comprehensive hotel quarantine system to protect the nation’s health and the rollout of the vaccine.”
