Boris Johnson has admitted there are “deep and complex” issues to be considered on the issue of vaccine certificates. The controverial idea is being floated as a way to help entertainment and hospitality venues up and running again.

The PM has handed over the nitty-gritty to Michael Gove, who has been asked to lead a review looking into the “scientific, moral, philosophical, ethical” questions the introduction of certificates poses.

Nadhim Zahawi, the vaccines minister, has previously said there were no plans afoot to use vaccine passports domestically.
