Dorset Chamber reaction to lockdown support for hospitality, leisure and retail

Posted on: 06/01/2021

Dorset Chamber chief executive Ian Girling said: “While this immediate cash flow support for business is welcome, it will be a drop in the ocean for some hard-pressed firms.

“We need to see a clear long-term strategy for the whole of 2021. Support must be sufficient to cover not just those on the front line of retail, hospitality and leisure, but also firms in supply chains and wider business communities who are also feeling the devastating impacts of these restrictions.

“The government must set out a long-term plan that allows all businesses of all shapes and sizes to plan, and ultimately stand the best chance of surviving.

“Dorset Chamber is here to help and we’ll continue to do our best to support, protect and connect our members through our online events as well as offer a free business information and signposting service through the Dorset Gateway, delivered by Dorset Chamber in partnership with Dorset LEP.
Call 01202 714800 or visit dorsetchamber.co.uk.”
