Scrap the compulsory £210 home test kit when arriving in U.K.
Please scrap the compulsory £210 test kit that you must do when returning to the U.K. form abroad. Let people quarantine at home and they can test for free after quarantine if they have symptoms.
When you enter the U.K. the current rule is that you have to quarantine and take 2 tests (the test kit) in your place of quarantine. This costs £210. For a family of 4 this would be an extra £840 to pay towards their holiday. I am writing to allow this test to be scrapped and have a rule in place for people to quarantine at home when they arrive and only to take a free test when they come out of quarantine if they have symptoms. This extra money is out of reach and for many will stop holidays.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
