Free OCR Tests ?

For OCR read PCR.

Tory MP today The Government has again plunged the travel and aviation sector into a period of uncertainty and added costs and inconvenience for travellers,” he said.

“To maintain these restrictions for what I hope will be a very brief period, the Government should at least ensure that the PCR tests that are being required for returning passengers are provided at no extra cost to the passenger.”

So we the taxpayers pick up the tab for folk swanning around the world? There is no magic money tree. If you want to fly, pay for your own test!

Just when you need a P, you cannot find it.

Much as when wearing long johns: flash to bang time issue.

As you started the thread I think you can delete it all - and start again with PCR

No, not for the folk swanning around the world. Taxpayers pay for tests that provide income for Tory donors, and if travelers don't pay themselves, they won't be stingy and the cash keeps flowing.

Oddly enough [no, not really odd] the British Army used OC for ......... the Commanding Officer, be it lt col, or major in his absence, or indeed captain after battle casualties.

Not sure when CO was boss and OC was at sub unit level.

Just back from sea, and stuck in the changeover from lateral flow to pcr.
I had to pay UK77 to upgrade tests, and still await delivery. My main complaint
is the excessive price of these tests. I believe the actual cost is under UK20.
