London First responds to latest Government advice on Covid-19
17 March 2020
Responding to the Government’s change in advice on Covid-19 and the Mayor’s business group summit, which he attended, John Dickie, London First Policy Director, said:
“London has already taken a major hit with visits to attractions down 60% over the last month, and that was before the latest announcement. The Government must act decisively and fast to avoid this becoming a catastrophe for the pubs, restaurants, hotels and attractions that have relied on tourists and Londoners to stay afloat.
“It is critical to act to keep people safe and the Government must recognise that without an injection of cash many of these businesses will have to start laying people off, which will have dire consequences for them and the economy.”
