Covid passports: Plans criticised by MPs amid fears of ‘two-tier Britain’
BBC News says criticism is growing over plans for Covid passports in England, amid fears they could create a “two-tier” society.
Government documents released on Monday said such certificates – that prove if someone has had a vaccine, has tested negative or has immunity – were likely to become “a feature of our lives”.
At Monday’s press conference, Boris Johnson did not rule out the idea. But many MPs have criticised the plans, with senior Tory backbencher Mark Harper calling for a vote on the issue.
