The government’s Global Travel Taskforce is no longer active, TTG has learnt.
The taskforce, established in October, was chaired by transport secretary Grant Shapps and health secretary Matt Hancock, promising to “liaise with the travel sector in order to work on the operationalisation of testing approaches designed to reduce self-isolation”.
It attracted criticism from the sector when it emerged it would not include any representatives from the travel industry.
TTG learnt today that the taskforce is no longer active, having made recommendations to government that are currently being implemented.
This included recommendations on test to release and on pre-departure testing.
