SCOTTISH Labour have been accused of "hypocrisy" after Labour’s Shadow Chancellor said that UK Labour were in favour of vaccine passports.

On the BBC's Andrew Marr show on Sunday, Rachel Reeves confirmed that Labour supported all three aspects of the UK Government’s plan B Covid rules, including vaccine passports for some venues as happens in Scotland.

It comes after Labour MSPs voted against the Scottish Government’s vaccine certification scheme two months ago.

However, the party was willing to use them for the Labour conference.

Commenting, Gillian Martin MSP said: “Following Rachel Reeves comments today, it is now beyond doubt that Scottish Labour’s decision to vote against vaccine passports in Scotland was opposition for opposition’s sake.

"One thing in Westminster and another at Holyrood.

“Scotland’s approach is in line with certification in other European countries – and now it’s clear that the UK Labour party have fallen into line too.

“It's high time Scottish Labour stopped playing politics and got behind government efforts to boost vaccine uptake.”

Vaccine passports launched earlier this month in Scotland and are now required at venues such as nightclubs, strip clubs and unseated indoor events with more than 500 people, unseated outdoor events with more than 4000 people and any event with more than 10,000 people.

But the NHS Scotland Covid Status app has been hit with multiple bugs on launch, with users facing trouble registering.

Earlier this week, there were also concerns the app could be open to fraud after it was found out some users could screenshot their QR codes.

Scottish Labour have been contacted for comment.
