Ministers have been warned against introducing vaccine passports in England by a cross-party group of politicians including senior Conservative MPs and former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
More than 70 MPs, including 40 Conservatives, as well as peers from the House of Lords, have launched a campaign to oppose the move which they say would be “divisive and discriminatory”.
It comes as a report in The Daily Telegraph suggested a series of pilot tests for Covid passports were being planned which could include the FA Cup final and other sporting events in May, although Number 10 maintained any proposals were still under review.
But a pledge, signed by Mr Corbyn as well as other prominent figures such as Conservative former leader Sir Iain Duncan-Smith, Labour former shadow chancellor John McDonnell and ex-Lib Dem leader Tim Farron warned the Government against bringing in the scheme.

  • This was orchestrated to get us all vaccinated. This was the plan all along. 'Their' time is up and that is why they are pushing for us to be vaccinated/exterminated.

  • Vaccine passports - EXCELLENT IDEA!!! As our multinational government says: 'BUILD BACK BETTER' - finally some sanity. Facial scans would be the BEST!! This is the only way to get back to normal! We must force everyone to take experimental vaccines (with no long term data) and get a vaccine passport which will be used by our government and large altruistic multinational corporations for our good. Of course, they would never use it to gradually take more power and crush our rights as they only care about our well being. I feel much better!!!

  • Fair play to those MPs standing up for the MAJORITY of the population. They’re always banging on about inclusion and discrimination yet when it comes to vaccines they’ve completely forgotten because now it’s not their agenda

  • You need a passport to travel abroad, you need a license to drive a car. Some holiday resorts have already said they will only allow tourists with covid passports to enter their country. Fair enough, they do not want more covid coming into their country. But you shouldn’t need one to enter a pub in your own country. Do people have to show proof they have had the flu jab ? No. Why cant you just have a test a couple of days before you leave to go abroad ? If it’s good enough for lorry drivers coming into the UK to be tested without a covid passport, then it should be good enough for joe public.
