British Beer & Pub Association responds to ONS labour market statistics

Responding to the ONS Labour market statistics published today, Emma McClarkin, Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said:

“Rising unemployment and redundancies hitting a record high are extremely concerning. As one of the most devastated sectors by COVID-19, we fear it could get a lot worse unless action is taken.

“The Chancellor must act to get us over this final hurdle in the fight against the virus. A clear roadmap to reopening is needed to save jobs, along with an economic stimulus package so sectors like ours can bounce back and lead the recovery.”
