Economic assistance for the hospitality industry during the COVID-19 pandemic

The UK hospitality industry is facing an unprecedented challenge due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The industry employs over 3.2 million people and is worth more than £130 billion to the UK economy.

Employees in this industry are unable to work from home, and these businesses rely on customers to make money.

Any quarantine/lockdown situation could bankrupt many small businesses as their income will diminish but they will still have expenses.

The Government should provide aid to those impacted.
