Pubs and restaurants in England have been excluded from mandatory mask rules and Covid passes, but the industry has been hit by a wave of cancellations during the crucial holiday season. The nightclub trade fell by almost a third after the introduction of passes in Scotland and Wales.
Darren Jones, Labor MP and Chairman of the Business Select Committee, said: ‘As has been common practice during the pandemic, businesses and workers should be borne by the costs associated with doing the right thing, as demanded. the law. Implementing new restrictions without continued support is clearly a mistake. “
Attendees also pressured Mr Kwarteng for details of a ‘Plan C’, according to another source during the call, as well as police Covid passes and mask wearing.
The source said: “Several business groups have said, ‘if we come to the end of six weeks and it’s still bad, what are you going to do next?'”
The sales department declined to comment.
The companies are also keen to avoid requirements in Scotland to keep records of customer details in pubs, restaurants and cafes, as well as to impose masks in shops. Currently, stores are only legally required to display signs asking customers to wear face coverings.
The leave ended on September 30, after protecting 11.7 million jobs at its peak at a cost of £ 70 billion through three closures from March of last year.
