MAG statement on international travel framework
MAG CEO Charlie Cornish said:
“The traffic light system was signed-off by the UK’s four Chief Medical Officers to provide a safe framework for international travel based on different levels of risk in green, amber and red countries.
“The whole point of the framework is to allow people to make their own decisions about whether to travel or not, confident in the knowledge that it would be safe.
“It is simply unacceptable for some ministers and officials to seek to discourage international travel, based their own interpretations of government policy.
“Comments like these undermine consumer confidence and risk stifling the recovery of one of the UK’s most valuable sectors.”
