THE Member of Parliament (MP) for Twickenham has voted against the use of vaccine passports in nightlife and some indoor venues which is dependent on capacity.

Munira Wilson, who represents the Liberal Democrats, voted against the proposal made by Boris Johnson for Covid “Plan B”.

Johnson outlined various “Plan B” measures to slow down the spread of the new Covid variant Omicron.

The vote followed a press conference held by the PM on December 8.

The MP for Twickenham said vaccine passports provide a “false sense of security”.

She tweeted: “A thread on Covid Plan B votes today:

“This afternoon I sat and listened to much of the debate on Plan B.

“It is very clear we need to act, given the rapid spread of Omicron.

“Most importantly, getting as many people as boosted as quickly as possible is key.

“I strongly support the wearing of face coverings as widely as possible in public indoor spaces.

“The mandatory face coverings on public transport and essential shops should never have been dropped in the first place.

“I voted in FAVOUR of face coverings this evening.

“You can be vaccinated and still transmit Covid.

“Vaccine passports provide a false sense of security which has been proved ineffective in Scotland. Testing is much safer.

“Today's legislation was flawed as it did not offer an option which is not good for public health.

“I don't agree with mandatory vaccination of NHS staff, but it will only make the chronic staff shortage far worse.

“All the evidence shows coercion has the opposite effect on those hesitant about taking up the vaccine.

“Persuasion and engagement is key.”

A total of 369 MPs across England approved the mandatory use of vaccine passports for entry to large venues and 126 MPs voted against the new rule.

The vote was held at the House of Commons on December 14.
