DWYFOR Meirionnydd MP Liz Saville Roberts has said it is unfair that travel areas of high transmission in England are not subject to legal travel restrictions like in Wales.

The Prime Minister announced a new three-tier system of local restrictions in England on October, Monday, 12 October however no guidance on travel restrictions is based in law,

Welsh Government Health Secretary Vaughan Gething revealed that there is evidence of transmission of Covid-19 from high infection areas of England into Wales.

"It now seems people will be asked nicely by the Prime Minister not to go on holiday from areas of high infection, but this does not go far enough and is clearly unfair to people subject to restrictions within Wales," said Mrs Saville Roberts.

"People are rightly concerned that there is growing evidence that outbreaks in Wales are linked to the unrestricted movement of people from high transmission areas of England."

The Gwynedd MP raised concern that Conwy residents with 122 cases per 100,000, are not permitted by Welsh law to make non-essential journeys into Meirionnydd next door, where cases stand at 18 per 100,000 while people in Liverpool, with 600 cases per 100,000 can still go on holiday in Gwynedd and Ynys Môn.

"The First Minister Mark Drakeford must now stop dithering on this matter and immediately use his powers to control the spread of the virus into Wales."
