Jason asked the Prime Minister about further support for businesses in supply chains to the hospitality industry, including microbreweries, and whether we can help support well being and mental health by allowing Covid safe outdoor activities like golf, tennis and fitness sessions.
Jason McCartney MP
I thank the Prime Minister for answering all 99 questions before mine.
My constituents have pretty much been under local restrictions since the start of August, with the impact on local businesses, wellbeing and mental health.
I ask the Prime Minister to continue to ask the Chancellor to support businesses in the supply chain for the hospitality industry, such as food and drink businesses and microbreweries, and to look again at whether we can have some covid-safe outdoor exercise such as golf, tennis and exercise classes to support wellbeing and mental health.
The Prime Minister MP
I will look carefully at my hon. Friend’s point about microbreweries, which he has raised with me before.
We can have covid-secure golf, covid-secure tennis, covid-secure whatever he likes in 28 days’ time.
We just have to get through this difficult period. I apologise for it; I am sorry that the nation has to do it, but it is by far the best way forward for the country.
