Grant Shapps – 2021 Comments on New International Travel System

The comments made by Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport, on 4 October 2021.

We are accelerating towards a future where travel continues to reopen safely and remains open for good, and today’s rule changes are good news for families, businesses and the travel sector.

Our priority remains to protect public health but, with more than 8 in 10 people now fully vaccinated, we are able to take these steps to lower the cost of testing and help the sector to continue in its recovery.
