Nick Thomas-Symonds comments on confusion regarding travel restrictions between UK and ‘amber list’ countries

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on confusion regarding travel restrictions between UK and ‘amber list’ countries, said:

 

“The Conservatives’ border policies have unravelled into dangerous chaos within a matter of hours since international travel was opened up.

 

“There is a lack of strategy, which has meant the U.K. Government, and their own Ministers, are giving out conflicting and confused advice about whether people are allowed to travel, especially between ‘amber list’ countries.

 

“Labour has been clear that there should be a pause on international travel, to guard against further importing of dangerous strains, setting back hopes for ending restrictions.”
