Concern over future of some businesses in latest lockdown say Essex Chambers of Commerce

January 5, 2021

Commenting on the latest lockdown, David Burch, Director of Policy at Essex Chambers of Commerce, said

It is disappointing but perhaps understandable that we have had to enter another period of lockdown, though the arrival of a two vaccines offer hope for the future and we look forward to seeing them rolled out as a matter of urgency. Despite receiving government support many businesses,  especially smaller ones who are not deemed essential, are in a precarious position from previous lockdowns and we are concerned that some of them will not survive long term. We hope people will comply with the Government’s regulations so that we can come out of this situation sooner rather than later but in the meantime if people are able to support local businesses online we would urge them to do so.”
