BCC responds to government’s plan for local lockdowns

Published 3rd Jul 2020 by Emma Sinfield

Commenting on the government's five-step plan for imposing local lockdowns in the case of coronavirus spikes

BCC Co-Executive Director Hannah Essex said:

“Businesses will welcome the announcement of a considered approach to local lockdowns, which could pose further challenges for operational and consumer confidence in the weeks and months ahead.

“Where local lockdowns unfortunately do become necessary, firms will need greater clarity and support to help them survive further disruption.

“Transparent statistical triggers, timing and a clear exit strategy developed with input from local experts including Chambers of Commerce will help businesses plan ahead. Targeted government support should be offered to the hardest hit firms forced to close through no fault of their own.”
