Compensation for the Wedding Sector due to Government intervention/restrictions
The wedding sector requires financial assistance due to the Government intervention during the Covid-19 pandemic. The government initially shut us down and has now imposed restrictions which has meant couples are either postponing or worse cancelling and demanding refunds from businesses that
are not fully open for business and have not been earning in 2020.
Also Business Interruption Insurance is not paying out so we need:
1- Compensation for loss of gross profit for 2020 and 2021 if restrictions continue
2 - Compensation to assist with refunds, especially as the CMA does not truly understand the wedding sector
This is not limited to venues but all companies that provide services in the wedding sector from bloggers to videographers we all need this compensation.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
