To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if the Government will make an assessment of the potential merits of providing financial compensation to UK citizens who were required to quarantine in hotels for the period starting at 4:00am on 28 November 2021; and if he will make a statement.
We have no plans to make this assessment. There are no refunds or financial compensation available for guests who completed their quarantine period and had checked out of the managed quarantine hotel on or before 4am on 15 December. From 4pm on 15 December, guests with a negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test result and those who had not yet taken a PCR test were able to depart the quarantine hotel. In England, guests who were released early from managed quarantine are entitled to a refund for the unused part of their stay.
