David Calls for Urgent Further Assistance for the Tourism and Hospitality Sector

Throughout the Coronavirus crisis the Government has helped to protect businesses, jobs and self employed people through unprecedented levels of financial support. However, many businesses across Somerton & Frome in the tourism and hospitality sector have raised concerns that, having spent much of the key summer period under lockdown, and being permitted to reopen on only a limited basis (with some not being permitted to reopen at all), unless further bespoke support for the sector is provided throughout the winter then there is a real possibility that they will be forced to cease trading. David is fighting to obtain this support and has written to the Chancellor, Rt Hon Rishi Sunak MP, calling for further financial support for this crucial sector.
