'People can look at possibility of booking foreign travel'

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said people can now start looking at the "possibility of booking foreign travel", as the government plans to bring back the traffic light system to categorise countries based on their Covid-19 risk level. "There is an abundance of caution involved in this new traffic light system", the Conservative Minister said, adding: "what we're most concerned with is variants of concern...rather than the prevalance".

Shadow Home Secretary Nick Thomas-Symonds has criticised the government's announcement on foreign holidays, after details emerged about how England's traffic light system for travel will work. Mr Thomas-Symonds said the Government has not given enough detail about this system for it to be properly scrutinised by MPs.
