Paul Slevin, President of South and Mid Wales Chamber of Commerce, said:
“We welcome the announcements from the First Minister today regarding the further easing of lockdown measures. For the hospitality industry in particular, the ability to reopen indoor facilities is significant following months of uncertainty and challenges within the sector. With the addition of the UK Government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ incentive, the move is a positive step for the sector and consumers to regain a sense of normality.
“The Welsh Government’s decision to set a provisional date for indoor leisure activities to reopen will also be appreciated by many, providing clarity for the sector and allowing them to plan for a safe return.
“We continue to work with businesses, the Welsh and UK Governments in an effort to help to further reduce the restrictions and enable more businesses to reopen.”
