Labour ministers in Cardiff Bay are being told that they should make clear to Welsh families, workers, and business if they plan to introduce domestic vaccine passports.
Following the decision not to go ahead with passports in England and the vote in the Scottish Parliament confirming they will, the Welsh Conservatives have called on the Welsh Government to come clean on its intentions.
Conservatives in the Senedd have previously said they would oppose any such scheme in Wales.
Vaccine passports are already available to enable international travel, but debate continues regarding their use to access well-attended venues such as nightclubs and sports stadia.
Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister Russell George MS said:
“Not only is Wales the only part of Great Britain that will not have a Covid inquiry, it is the only part yet to be told whether or not they’ll be subject to draconian vaccine passports, further limiting the freedoms of citizens and harming businesses’ ability to operate efficiently.
“Over the last 18 months, Labour ministers have always been playing catch-up, and it’s time they come clean now on their plans for vaccine passports in Wales as they should not be allowed to spring this on customers and businesses with little to no notice.
“I also call on the Welsh Government to ensure that, should they choose to bring them forward, that the proposals are put to a vote in the Senedd prior to any proposed introduction and that the full details are given to members.
“We will all be interested to see too if the First Minister and Sir Keir Starmer are on the same page when it comes to vaccine passports.”
