Sam Bowman on UK Travel Restrictions

Irish Independent – ICLE Director of Competition Policy, Sam Bowman, was quoted in the Irish Independent about the recent UK travel restrictions.

Sam Bowman said the British government dropped the ball when it came to heightening restrictions and should have acted earlier.

“I booked my flights back in September and I knew then there was a good chance that I wouldn’t be going back. I spoke alone with my parents and we decided the number of cases here was high enough that I couldn’t risk coming home and bringing it back home to them. I think it is the right decision but I think they should have done it six weeks ago, not five days before Christmas.
