Jane Dodds: We must rule out the illiberal and unworkable vaccine passports


The Welsh Lib Dems have continued their calls for the Welsh Government and local councils to rule out the illiberal and unworkable vaccine passports, with news that the Conservatives in Westminster are looking to bring them in.

The party’s leader in Wales, Jane Dodds MS said: “The Welsh Liberal Democrats continue to oppose any form of passport or certificate for accessing services or venues. The introduction of these would not only be divisive and discriminatory but unworkable and illiberal.

"If we truly want to keep people safe, then we must ensure that we have a strong test and trace system to protect vulnerable people - but a national ID system for vaccines does not help with this.

"Introducing these passports will leave many businesses on their knees, facing reduced custom and struggling with the extra cost of enforcement.

"I call on the Welsh Government and local councils to rule out introducing these burdensome vaccine passports here in Wales and focus instead of reducing the number of cases everywhere."
