LCCI comment on new border measures

London Chamber of Commerce and Industry respond to further government measures announced today to protect UK borders from COVID-19 variants.

Richard Burge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said: “At this point in the UK’s pandemic response we understand that the government must tighten border protection measures.

“We still need to see the science behind these measures and we want to know why their introduction has been delayed.

"The economic impact of these measures is obvious. The government must sufficiently support our aviation and travel companies, as well as the downstream hospitality, inward tourism and cultural sectors. They have to be preserved as they are key to London and the UK’s economic recovery. This government support should be announced now and should be as open-ended as the protection measures themselves”
