I am pleased to say that the Secretary to the Treasury has now responded to my Written Question on the need for extra hospitality support. Back in December I made clear that our hospitality industry needed more support, and I am pleased to see that the Chancellor has announced a one-off grant of up to £9,000 hospitality businesses.
I continue to raise the concerns of local businesses with government, including the need to support our wedding industry, gyms, golf courses and beauticians. And I send out regular updates to businesses in Scunthorpe, with my most recent update providing more information and eligibility criteria for the hospitality grant.
