Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to the result of Labour’s Opposition Day debate on border security against Covid

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the result of Labour’s Opposition Day debate on border security against Covid, said:

 

“It is deeply irresponsible for the Government to not back Labour’s proposals to toughen up our defences against Covid variants, especially on a day when additional cases of the so-called South African strain have been discovered in the UK.

 

“We are in a race against time and Ministers are missing a vital chance to help shut the door on virus mutations that could have a devastating impact on people’s lives and the economy.”
