Our MP for Fylde, Mark Menzies has taken the opportunity to virtually join a Parliamentary session on Covid-19: Support for Businesses to personally thank the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, for the extensive measures he has put in place, particularly for the hospitality sector.
MP Menzies said, ‘I just want to take this opportunity to thank the Chancellor for the way in which he has engaged with me and other Members representing coastal communities throughout the lifetime of the pandemic. I know the extensive measures he has put in place, particularly for the hospitality sector, will make a huge difference to those businesses surviving.’
In turn, Rishi Sunak thanked Mark Menzies saying, ‘My Hon. Friend has been instrumental in providing on-the-ground information to me and my team about the particular situation facing hospitality businesses in coastal communities like his. He is an absolute champion for them and rightly so. They are an important part of his local economy and I am glad that this Budget supported them. He has my assurance that we will continue to work with him and them to get them the support that they deserve.’
