This is a government expert who has boosted holiday hopes by pointing out that the number of worrying variants is not increasing across Europe, although the cases are.

The latest data show that potentially destructive strains of vaccines are responsible for less than 5% of infections on the continent.

Mr Shapps warned Britons they would have to wait until next month to find out which countries they can visit without needing to quarantine on their return.

He also said he would ‘not spare’ money-grabbing companies that charge £ 200 for a Covid stamp.

They should be done in private to avoid overloading the NHS.

Mr Shapps said profiteers could be excluded from the list of government approved suppliers.

Some airlines have warned that the use of tests would deter people from visiting “green” countries thanks to the overseas travel system with traffic lights.

EasyJet boss Johan Lundgren said he risked “flying only for the rich”.

Ministers are expected to announce early next month where a country is placed.

According to plans, arrivals from a “green” country will not need to self-isolate.

Those in an “orange” destination must be quarantined for ten days.

The rules for arrivals at “red” places will continue, including a paid stay in a quarantine hotel.

“These restrictions will be reviewed on June 28 to take into account” the national and international health situation. “

Steve Heapy, of Jet2.com, said there was “lingering uncertainty”.

He said: “We still don’t know when we can start flying, where we can fly, and the availability and cost of testing.”
