Labour responds to the news that travellers from France will have to quarantine

Nick Thomas Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the news that travellers from France will have to quarantine even if they are double-vaccinated, said:

“The UK Government’s Covid border restrictions are descending into further chaos.

“Boris Johnson’s incompetence let the Delta variant in and allowed it to spread with such force. Now, Ministers are making up rules on the hoof regarding France and causing chaos – they have never had a proper strategy in place; once again the travel industry and the British people are paying the price.

“The Government must now publish full data behind the traffic light system and update on progress on international vaccine passports.”
