Simon Kolstoe, senior lecturer and university ethics advisor at the University of Portsmouth, joins to discuss the clash between the safety of society and individual rights, and Peter Marks, CEO of REKOM UK, which owns 42 nightclubs says the passports idea might put off customers in an industry already badly hit by previous lockdowns.
