Chamber comment on new lockdown restrictions


​Jonathan Walker, assistant director of policy, North East England Chamber of Commerce said: “With the significant rise in numbers of Covid-19 cases we accept further restrictions are necessary to bring the situation under control. We welcome the clear and consistent approach to this across local authority boundaries.

“Businesses want to play their part in tackling this pandemic and the overwhelming majority are doing all they can to keep both their employees and the public safe.

“The fight against Covid-19 might be a long one and ongoing business support from Government, as well as a comprehensive, functioning test and trace system will be needed to ensure that our economic health is protected alongside our public health.”
