In a letter to the prime minister, they said that hospitality businesses were under ‘immense financial pressure’ and by allowing the scheme it will allow them to recover.

In the letter it said: “Even when they are able to reopen to customers, restrictions around mixing of households and social distancing measures mean that a return to trading at full capacity will remain dependent on the successful vaccine rollout.”

They also added government support is ‘critical’ to protect jobs.

In the letter they added: “The withdrawal of support too early or too suddenly risks viable businesses failing just as the light at the end of the tunnel is becoming clearer.”

It was explained by allowing the new scheme it will give restaurants and other hospitality businesses the chance to ‘survive summer’.

Last summer diners were given 50% off their food and drink up to a maximum of £10 at participating restaurants between Mondays and Wednesdays.

As well as the ‘Eat out to help out’ scheme businesses are urging the prime minister to extend the furlough scheme as long as possible.
