Following the Prime Minister’s press conference yesterday, Dorset Chamber has backed the lifting of Covid restrictions.
Chief Executive Ian Girling said: “The lifting of the latest phase of restrictions is a long-awaited milestone on our journey out of the pandemic. Clearly, it is great news and will be very welcome among many businesses in the leisure, tourism and hospitality sectors but it should also provide a shot in the arm for our local economy generally.
“The downgrading of the Covid-19 alert level from four to three and recent figures from the Bank of England forecasting the fastest economic growth in 70 years in 2021 also give cause for optimism.
“However, we must remain vigilant and guard against complacency as the virus is still in circulation and the ending of all government support is still to come.
“It is critical that we all act responsibly and abide by the remaining restrictions so we can unlock the next phase of the roadmap on 21 June and really start firing on all cylinders in Dorset.”
