Responding to the Government’s announcement that a Ministerial taskforce will be set up by the Department for Business to plan for re-opening pubs and restaurants safely, CAMRA National Chairman Nik Antona said:

“CAMRA welcomes today’s announcement of a taskforce to help pubs re-open and operate safely within social distancing guidelines.

“Pubs are a key part of our social fabric and it is vital that people can safely support them when they re-open so that they can weather the difficult weeks and months ahead.

“It’s clear that some types of pubs won’t be able to open and operate successfully with social distancing measures, and we want the Government to pay particular attention to how they can support those pubs to ensure their future survival.

“Pubs will require ongoing financial support both during lockdown and after restrictions lift, and we look forward to working with the taskforce to ensure clarity and support is outlined in every step of the process.”
