Vaccine Passports still illiberal and unworkable say Welsh Lib Dems

RESPONDING to news that the Welsh First minister is in talks with the UK Government over a “Vaccine passport or certificate”

Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats Jane Dodds said:

“We reiterate our opposition to any form of passport or certificate for accessing services or venues. The introduction of these would be not only be divisive and discriminatory but unworkable and illiberal.

“Plans to use the NHS app would discriminate against anyone who neither has nor can afford a smartphone.

“As the party of civil liberties and personal freedoms we were proud to successfully oppose the previous attempt to introduce of ID cards to the UK and we oppose these vaccine passports.”
