UK government looking at compensation for scrapped travel plans, says minister

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s government is looking into compensating people who have had to scrap their travel plans after new measures were put in place before Christmas to try to stem the spread of a new variant of the coronavirus, health minister Matt Hancock said.

Asked by Times radio whether the government would hand out compensation, Hancock said: “That is something that the Treasury (finance ministry) and the Department for Transport are looking at, because we understand the point that people are making.”
