Jo Stevens – 2020 Comments on the Hospitality Industry and High Streets

The comments made by Jo Stevens, the Shadow Culture Secretary, on 28 December 2020.

Visitors normally flock to the UK because of our rich heritage, vibrant restaurant scene and stunning natural attractions.

This has been a devastating year but it is within the gift of the Government to support our vital tourism sector so that it can be there to welcome back visitors, both from the UK and abroad, when it’s safe to do so.

Labour has consistently called for sector specific support and reallocating this public money from businesses that have returned it is an obvious solution.
