Can pubs reopen after lockdown? The rules for all tiers

Share This

Emma McClarkin, Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said: “Our sector has been singled out by these new measures which unfairly target pubs.

“The additional restrictions will destroy our sector if they go ahead as proposed.

“Whilst the review of curfew is overdue the relaxation of the 10pm curfew is meaningless if most pubs are rendered unviable or forced to close under tiers 2 and 3.”

Ms McClarkin has called on the Government to cite the evidence for closing pubs, after Public Health England said it found only one percent of all new infections were linked to a pub setting.

She said: “We are genuinely concerned the decision announced today has not taken this evidence into account.
