Mr Colm Gildernew (Chairperson)
Ms Paula Bradshaw

Mr Alan Chambers
Ms Órlaithí Flynn

Ms Elaine Colgan, Department of Health

Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (Amendment No.2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2021

The Chairperson (Mr Gildernew): This SR removes the United Arab Emirates from the list of countries and territories in respect of which travellers are exempt from the requirement to self-isolate for 10 days here in the North. The Examiner of Statutory Rules has highlighted a drafting error in the rule, which the Department has confirmed that it will correct at the earliest opportunity.

Have members any further issues that they wish to raise in connection with this statutory rule? No. OK, thank you. I ask members to agree formally that the Committee for Health has considered SR 2021/5, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (Amendment No.2) Regulations (NI) 2021 and has no objection to the rule. Are members content?

Members indicated assent.
