Dale Keller,

Whilst 12 April to report and 17 May earliest to commence reopening of international travel may seem a long way off, make no mistake just how much work has gone in by many in the industry to get specific deadlines and a commitment to a plan and close engagement with the sector.The UK can take a lead here and BAR UK for one will be offering its expertise via the Expert Steering Group to achieve optimal outcomes for the travelling public and the sector at large.


Laura Hope, Crawley

Let us hope at 7pm someone has the courage to ask the question why the travel review is being held back until 12 April. Surely a interim report is needed. We want to know the way forward.

Lionel Benjamin, United Kingdom

“The hospitality industry appreciates and respects the requirement to open slowly and gradually to protect public health. The Government\'s cautious road map illustrates this. However, the Government has demonstrated it is possible to have safe hotels, with its quarantine accommodation, and should trust the sector to open in a responsible and safe manner at the same time as self-catering accommodation. Simple measures such as limiting food services, closing communal areas and reserving areas for people who are fully vaccinated could significantly enhance safety and bring the risk level closer to self-catering accommodation. Waiting until the middle of May to reopen a sector which has already needed significant financial support seems unnecessary and we urge the Government to reconsider.”
