The future of mobile catering in events and festivals remains uncertain. We need more support for these members and will continue to share our position with government. We would urge you to write to your PM to highlight the challenges you are facing, apply for a discretionary Covid-19 support grant and watch the debate on “Government to offer economic assistance to the events industry during COVID-19”, taking place tomorrow, the 25th of June which will take place in the House of Commons as part of a wider debate on petitions calling for support to UK industries in response to Covid-19
The start time of the debate will depend on other parliamentary business, but you can follow the Petitions Committee on Twitter @HoCpetitions, where updates will be posted on when the debate is expected to start. You can watch the debate live here: and a transcript will be published the following day here: https://hansard.parliament.uk.
