Govt must make more help available to pubs and restaurants

Responding to reports that the PM will set a 10pm closing time and only allow table service in restaurants and pubs, leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:

“For millions of people this will feel like a step backwards. After months of disruption to our daily lives many will feel anxious and worried about this latest development.

“The Government must immediately put forward a detailed plan to fix the track and trace system, which is the only way to avoid further measures being necessary.

“The Prime Minister must also give financial help to pubs and restaurants who will inevitably lose business. People have already been through so much hardship. We cannot allow thousands of jobs to disappear overnight.”
