Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 18597, tabled on 18 June 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent assessment he has made of the capacity of covid-19 hotel quarantine ahead of international students from red list countries arriving in the UK at the start of the 2021-22 academic year.

We currently have thousands of hotel rooms available to meet anticipated demand from ‘red list’ countries. Travellers arriving from these countries should continue to book a place in a quarantine hotel at least 48 hours before arrival. The Government will monitor future demand to match with available hotel capacity.
