Covid Passports

Demanding a Covid passport as proof of a jab or test to access jobs or services is "dangerous, discriminatory and counterproductive", opponents say.
Baroness Chakrabarti warned the passports risked creating a "checkpoint Britain" as more than 70 MPs railed against their use in England.

Labour's Jeremy Corbyn and senior Tory Iain Duncan Smith are among a broad coalition who pledged their opposition.
The government said no final decision had been made on Covid passports.
But a series of Covid passport trials are being planned to test their use in different venues, the Daily Telegraph reported.
A review is taking place into whether passports could help to reopen the economy in England, with discussions also taking place across the devolved nations.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has previously said people could be asked to provide a vaccine certificate for entry into pubs in England, saying it "may be up to individual publicans".
Certification could involve people being either vaccinated, having had a recent negative test or having previously been infected, the PM said.

It would be "remiss" of the government not to consider Covid certification as a way of fully reopening the economy, Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi says.
Amid criticism of the plans, Mr Zahawi said: "It's only right that we look at all these options that are available to us to take our lives back."
The government said certificates showing vaccination, test or immunity status could "provide reassurance".
Boris Johnson said they could help signal a person is not contagious.
Speaking on a visit to an AstraZeneca factory in Macclesfield, Cheshire, Mr Johnson said Covid certificates - also referred to as passports - would not be rolled out until well after indoor hospitality reopens from 17 May.
Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she was open-minded about using certificates to allow certain activities to resume, and called for an open debate.
But many MPs have criticised the plans, with senior Tory backbencher Mark Harper warning it could lead to a "two-tier" Britain, demanding a vote on the issue.

Passports will add to the rest of the mess and inconsistences like toilets,
not to be used on campsites,at the moment.
Pub outside rule,but you can go to the toilet inside.
Public toilets,also open.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason
