More than 60 restaurant owners, nightclub operators and other hospitality figures have told Boris Johnson that they will not force customers to show Covid passports. In a letter to the Prime Minister, seen by The Telegraph, the signatories make clear their opposition to Covid status certification being used in hospitality settings. "We will not be forcing our patrons to show us any documentation referring to health status to gain entry," one line of the letter reads. The intervention is a shot across the bows of the Government as ministers consider whether to require restaurants and pubs to check the Covid status of customers. Among the signatories are the CEOs of Rekom UK, which runs 42 nightclubs, and Tokyo Industries, which runs clubs, festivals and bars. Others backing the letter include senior figures at venues such as The Hippodrome Casino, Electric Star Pubs, Bocca de Lupo, Proud Cabaret, Brindisa and Burger&Lobster.
