P-06-1167 Support Welsh travel & tourism businesses



This petition was submitted by Matthew Sutton, having collected a total of 138 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

Coronavirus has had a huge impact on all businesses across Wales, but from the start the travel and tourism industry has had a huge financial impact.


From the original 5 mile rule, to being allowed to trade for just 7 weeks, and now local travel restrictions re-imposed across much of Wales.


Additional Information:

The tourism industry in particular coach holidays takes people to seaside resorts, towns and cities putting plenty of money through local hospitality and retail businesses.


We have received very little funding, and the latest announcement on the economic resilience fund will not be enough to support all the businesses across wales that need the support.


There have been support packages put in place for many business types, but ours seems to be the worst affected and least supported.


We are kindly asking for your support to let the Welsh Government discuss a plan of helping our industry survive this pandemic.
