Following the Government statement on workplace safety after the lifting of lockdown, Peter Aldous calls for the gradual reopening of holiday parks, campsites and self-catering accommodation which are well-suited to workplace safety arrangements and could boost the local economy and provide people the opportunity of a holiday in the UK.
Does my hon. Friend agree that holiday parks, campsites and self-catering holiday accommodation are well suited to adhering to workplace safety arrangements and should be considered for phased and gradual reopening, to boost coastal and rural economies and provide people with the opportunity of a holiday in the UK?
I am glad that my hon. Friend is standing up for coastal areas, which have been particularly badly affected. I get a lot of feedback from an economic point of view from the hospitality, leisure and retail sectors. We work closely with them and will continue to do so. I will ensure that we pay due attention to that advice, so that all coastal areas are as well looked after as possible.
