Following the Prime Minister’s announcement that she will seek Parliamentary approval for a General Election on 8 June, ALMR Chief Executive, Kate Nicholls, welcomed the opportunity that it will provide to engage candidates across Britain on the key issues for hospitality.

Nicholls said: “Whatever the outcome, we need a Government that takes decisive action to tackle rising costs for eating and drinking out businesses and provides clarity on Brexit. Employers need confidence and financial room to manoeuvre if they are to invest and grow.

“At the last General Election, the ALMR carried out targeted action to liaise with MPs to make them aware of the contribution being made by licensed hospitality businesses in their constituencies. Over the coming weeks and months the ALMR will be working hard to make sure that all parties know how valuable the sector is and what needs to be done to enable businesses to succeed.”
