“Dominic Raab this morning has said
that hospitality and ‘personal care
services’ such as hair and beauty
salons and barbershops in England will
not be able to reopen until 4th July at
the earliest. It is our view that this is the
right course of action, as the safety of
the people in our industry is paramount.
Scotland and Wales have also spoken
of their determination to take a cautious
approach and their current restrictions
remain in place.
We hope to be able to provide more
clarity later following a meeting with
representatives from the Department
for Business, Energy and Industrial
Strategy this morning. There are still
many concerns within our industry and
we are working hard to get answers so
that we can plan to return to work safely
when the time is right.
