The Rich Are Hiding a LOT of Income, Treasury Says


The Telegraph

Almost 300,000 will fly to ‘amber list’ countries by Sunday

Up to 270,000 people will fly to “amber list” countries from the UK by the weekend amid growing confidence among the vaccinated that it is safe to travel. Analysis for The Telegraph shows more than 1,300 flights are scheduled to go to “amber” countries in the five days to Sunday at a rate of up to 54,000 passengers a day, with destinations including holiday resorts in Spain, Greece, Italy and France. Seven of the 10 biggest UK tour operators are exploiting confusion in the Government’s guidance to fly holidaymakers to countries or islands deemed safe for non-essential travel by the Foreign office despite being on the “amber list”. It flies in the face of renewed appeals by Boris Johnson and Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, on Wednesday for the public not to fly to “amber” destinations other than for “extreme” reasons such as caring for a dying relative. Mr Johnson told MPs: “It is very, very clear – you should not be going to an ‘amber list’ country except for some extreme circumstance, such as the serious illness of a family member. You should not be going to an ‘amber list’ country on holiday.” Mr Hancock told a Downing Street press conference: “If you want to holiday abroad, that is what the ‘green list’ is for, or holiday at home.”
