Welsh Conservative comment on three-week review
Commenting, Welsh Conservative and Shadow Health Minister Russell George MS said:
“The First Minister is trying to portray a picture where no new restrictions are being introduced, but this is the week when coercive, ineffective, and anti-business vaccine passports have been expanded.
“This has come in tandem with the threat to bring them in to even more settings such as the hospitality sector that has already suffered significantly during the pandemic, yet might be lumbered with extra costs to implement the passport system.
“Vaccine passports are bad law: there is no evidence they work, whether that be limiting the spread of the virus or increasing uptake of the vaccine, and conditions for their withdrawal should be set out by the Labour Government.
“If ministers are concerned about coronavirus spikes this winter, then they should implement our proposals to establish walk-in centres for eligible people to get their booster jabs because we know vaccines, not passports, are what is keeping us safe.”
