Provide additional support to pubs, restaurants and all hospitality sectors.
Provide financial backing to the hospitality sector. We are still required to pay rent, SKY, BT, more wages than normal to police COVID regulations. Gas, electric, water rates etc. These bills are already astronomical. We've been financially slapped since reopening because of the restrictions.
The hospitality sector as a whole are going to be hit the hardest throughout the pandemic. We are now having to operate at less than half capacity. Our opening hours have been shortened to 10pm, last orders at 9.30pm (this is when most pubs take the most money) people are threatened with hefty fines for not wearing a mask, for standing up, for standing at the bar, for not using track and trace. Nobody wants to drink in these conditions. Its to much hassle. People are going to lose their jobs!
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.
