Current Inquiries:‘Pathways to Recovery’ - COVID-19 and the Hospitality and Tourism Sectors
The All Party Parliamentary Group for Hospitality and Tourism has launched its urgent inquiry into the measures that businesses in these two vital sectors of the UK’s economy will need in order to successfully reopen, recover, and thrive in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis.
The key focus of this inquiry will be assessing what is needed to get businesses in these sectors back on their feet at the appropriate time, providing forward-looking recommendations to guide Government and businesses as they move to thinking about recovery. Our consultation questions will look broadly at what support measures businesses would like to see from Government, while also looking at the internal and operational challenges that businesses face when looking to reopen.
There will be four key themes:
The need for this inquiry is immediate and as such, by design, the time for gathering evidence will be short. We aim to publish our findings and report in full by the middle of May, however, we may push forward the publication date in order to feed our findings into Government while important discussions on recovery are being held.
The ‘Pathways to Recovery’ consultation has now closed. If you have any comments or queries, please email Richard Clifford at email@example.com.
