BCC responds to new national Coronavirus restrictions

1st October 2020

Responding to new national restrictions for England to combat a rising number of Coronavirus cases, announced by the Prime Minister today (22 September), BCC Director General Adam Marshall said:

“Businesses understand that further restrictions are necessary to tackle the rising number of Coronavirus cases, but these measures will impact business and consumer confidence at a delicate time for the economy.

"Businesses, their employees and customers need to see a clear road map for the existing restrictions and those that may be introduced in the future. This must include transparent trigger points, and clarity about the support available to protect jobs and livelihoods.”

“The government should waste no time in setting out a comprehensive support package for firms forced to close or reduce capacity through no fault of their own.”
