Despite a lack of confidence from the U.K. live music industry about plans for mandatory vaccine passports for gigs, the Government has said it intends to press along with its plan for late September.

The idea that nightclubs, gigs and indoor events should require attendees to provide proof of vaccination was first raised by Boris Johnson back in July. Since then, it’s been a source of contention in the industry with many favoring the three-tier choice of vaccination or antibody proof, or a negative test.

Despite this, a new statement from Johnson’s spokesperson has said there is “no change” in his position and that details of the new rule will be announced in the coming weeks, according to a story in The i.

There is still another hurdle to clear, however. Before the plans get put into place, the proposal will require a vote in the House of Commons. With many MPs also opposing the plan, there’s still a chance that Johnson may have to admit defeat.
