Louise Haigh – 2021 Comments on PCR Testing Costs

The comments made by Louise Haigh, the Shadow Transport Secretary, on 5 December 2021.

Many flying home for their first Christmas since the pandemic began will be hit with scandalous testing costs.

Unscrupulous private providers are pocketing millions, and leaving many families forced to shell out huge sums.

Ministers are sitting on their hands while people who want to do the right thing are paying the price for this broken market.

The Government must act ahead of the Christmas travel period, implement the recommendation of the regulator, and urgently consider bringing in a price cap to tackle the extortionate prices.
