Bira issues statement on Governments plans for rules ease in England

The British Independent Retailers Association (Bira) has made a statement about the announcement by the government about the removal of COVID-19 ‘Plan B’ restrictions.

Bira’s CEO Andrew Goodacre said: “It is a positive sign to see the Omicron wave abating, but we hope that the decision to remove some of the regulations is based on science rather that political reasoning.

“Retail businesses need certainty and we want to be sure that retailers do not need to re-introduce these measures in the near future because the government has acted in haste. We now hope that the government can focus on business support as we look to recover.”
