Some club nights in England have begun requiring an NHS Covid pass for entry, amid a demand for MPs to debate their use.

NHS Covid passes allow users to show proof of their vaccination, test or immunity status at venues.

They are available through England’s NHS app, which is separate from the NHS Covid-19 app in England and Wales.

The Lib Dems called for ministers to scrap the passes for good or at least allow MPs to debate them in Parliament.

Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman Alistair Carmichael accused ministers of committing to the passports “by stealth”.
