COVID PASSPORTS: Welsh Liberal Democrats react to the decision made over in England

 

Over in England there has been some uproar about plans to require covid passports to get into nightclubs, and this could possibly extend to other busy settings where social distancing isn't possible.

This has led to some members of the Senedd in Wales raising concerns about this method to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Now that the conservatives in Westminster have introduced plans for covid passports, Jane has renewed her calls for Welsh government and local councils to rule out what she calls these illiberal and unworkable plans.
Jane's key concerns are that the move could prove discriminatory for those who are unable to get the vaccine for a variety of reasons, and that what should be confidential information is being passed on to a third party.
Further arguments against the passports is that if a strong track, trace, and protect system is in place and that people are informed about the vaccine then there shouldn't be any need for an individual to prove to someone else that they've had the jab.
A formal decision on the use of covid passports in Wales in this way is yet to be announced, meanwhile Boris Johnson is facing pressure from his own party to reverse his decision on implementing them in England, indicating that the move isn't widely popular among many.
For Jane and Liberal Democrats though it's all about the data, and she plans to approach the next few weeks with caution.
