“I am … working with the sector as we plan for the longer-term recovery.”
The following question was asked in the House of Paul Scully, Business Minister at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Abena Oppong-Asare MP (Erith and Thamesmead): To ask the Secretary of State (BEIS), if he will work with businesses in the hospitality industry to establish a strategy to ensure businesses can recover after the January 2021 covid-19 lockdown.
Paul Scully MP (Sutton and Cheam) replied: I recognise the important role the hospitality sector as an economic driver and as the heart of communities up and down the country. While the Government is committed to supporting the sector until the vaccines are rolled out and businesses can open without restrictions, I am also working with the sector as we plan for the longer-term recovery.
