LCCI says Tier 2 coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions will hit London hard

The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has responded to governments latest coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions announcement saying that placing London under the Tier 2 band will 'hit London’s hospitality sector hard, particularly in its centre. There is bound to also be an impact on retail.’ Chief Executive, Richard Burge, explains that ‘many would rather be in a Tier 3 area, as at least if they were required to close by law they would be able to access grants and the more generous furlough scheme.’ Burge is urging the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, to ‘realise his funding packages are focused on recovery, but for the next few weeks we will not be recovering, we will be surviving.’
