Ruth Cadbury MP urges PM to take action to save local pubs and restaurants

Ruth Cadbury MP has written to the Prime Minister Boris Johnson to urge the Government to take action to support breweries, pubs and other hospitality businesses based locally in West London and across the country.

In her letter Ruth pointed to the strong community links that many local pubs and restaurants had, while also telling the Prime Minister about the important role that they play in the local economy.

‘‘The historic Chiswick Brewery, home of Fullers beer, and our many pubs, restaurants and cafes play a huge role in our local community. They provide an accessible and welcoming space for residents and serve as the backbone of the community.

“The Coronavirus has had a huge impact on the sector, and I know from talking to local pubs and businesses that they’ve been working hard to make their venues safe and Covid secure. However this has proved difficult with the confused and muddled messaging from the Government.

“I’m particularly worried about the impact on small businesses as we have over 70 licensed restaurants and 20 pubs based in our constituency which employ less than 10 people.

“Without urgent action from the Prime Minister I’m concerned that many much-loved local pubs, restaurants and cafes across the country could be lost.’’
