Days After ‘Absolutely’ Opposing Vaccine Passports, Labour Could Back Measures

Just days after Labour said it would “absolutely” oppose proof of vaccination to enter large venues like nightclubs, party leader Keir Starmer has suggested he could back vaccine passports and proof of a negative coronavirus test result for entry to sports stadiums.

When last week Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that from September, he will be demanding that those entering nightclubs “and other venues where large crowds gather” show proof of vaccination, Labour’s Khalid Mahmood said on Thursday that his party would “absolutely” be voting against vaccine passports.

“That is a clear position. It’s not changing today or tomorrow,” Mr Mahmood had said. While a Labour spokesman had said that day before the party opposed the “use of Covid vaccination status for everyday access to venues and services”, voicing a preference for testing, instead.
