"Given the incredible efficacy of vaccines and their critical role in easing domestic restrictions, we believe that the framework can safely be adjusted to provide a pathway for vaccinated people to travel without restriction, alongside steps to reduce restrictions for green and amber categories, making them more proportionate for travellers", the group said.

The move could also mean that people returning from amber list countries with both doses don't have to quarantine.

The Health Secretary said he is "in favour of moving forward in this area" and replacing quarantine with daily testing.

Boris Johnson told Sky News that ministers are looking at plans to end the requirement for people who have had two Covid-19 jabs and come into contact with an infected person to isolate for 10 days.

Asked whether people could expect to have a family holiday, Hancock said: "We'll get there when it's safe to do so... but of course we do want to get those freedoms back".

'After all, that's the whole goal of the vaccination programme, that's why it's so important that every adult goes out and gets the jab'.

The data over the last week or so has been encouraging, Matt Hancock said.

However, a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies said the government should limit global travel until amber list countries have their vaccination systems in place and their Covid-19 transmission reduced.

But lockdown restrictions will continue until July 19 at least, after the Government won the vote to delay of the final stage of England's roadmap to control the spread of the Delta variant.

'But it is more hard freeing up worldwide travel'.

'We can now, all of us, see our vaccine status, see your testing status, on the NHS app, ' he said.

"Six million people have now downloaded the main NHS App and on that you can show whether you have had the jabs", Hancock said.

Joanne Dooey, SPAA president, says she hopes First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will meet them to "explain why, despite a world-beating vaccination programme and easily accessible albeit expensive testing, we're further behind at opening up travel than we were 12 months ago when we had no rapid testing and no vaccination". "So, when travel opens up, we are going to make sure people have got that ability to prove it", he said.

"When it comes to travel we will certainly be looking at that, but I want to stress that this is going to be, whatever happens, a hard year for travel".
