Q What do you think of the travel changes announced by the transport secretary?

A Finally, just before 5pm on Friday, Grant Shapps tweeted out some changes to the tangle of travel restrictions that have blighted the summer for many of us. My scorecard records two modest positives. But much is still to be done before the UK can be said to have a coherent and effective set of rules governing international travel. The first positive: reducing the despised “red list” – countries from which it is necessary to go into hotel quarantine on arrival in the UK, at a cost of over £2,000.
