Nick Thomas-Symonds – 2021 Comments on Border Policy

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 12 February 2021.

They need – urgently – to move to a comprehensive hotel quarantine system, to protect against mutant strains of the virus and provide certainty. Continuing with this ‘red list’ approach will achieve neither.
