Jim McMahon comments on news the Government has scrapped plans for an amber watchlist

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on news the Government has scrapped plans for an amber watchlist, said:

 

“The Tories are in total chaos over their border policy, with days of confusions surrounding their plans for an amber watchlist.

 

“Not only have Ministers failed to protect our borders, allowing the Delta variant to reach the U.K. in such force, but time and time again they’ve refused to be straight with the public and industry to provide them with the information they need to build confidence, with clear information on the direction of travel of infections in each country.

 

“Ministers need to get a grip and set out a proper strategy, provide full data and progress work with global partners on international vaccine passports so travellers and the industry can have the maximum clarity, instead of reckless​ u-turns and confusion.”
