Nick Thomas-Symonds – 2021 Comments on Third French Lockdown

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 30 March 2021.

France’s decision to enter a third lockdown makes it even more urgent that the Conservatives introduce stricter border controls.

It’s reckless and unacceptable for only one percent of international arrivals to quarantine in a hotel.

I urge Conservative ministers to urgently secure our borders by introducing a comprehensive hotel quarantine system to protect the nation’s health and the rollout of the vaccine.
