I recently spoke in a Westminster Hall debate regarding the Beauty and Wellbeing sector. The beauty and wellbeing sector has been an overlooked area by Government despite contributing so much not just to our highstreets and communities but also to our economy. Feltham and Heston is home to great salons, and hairdressers, and these businesses have made a vital contribution to our high streets and economy. I am concerned that Government’s approach throughout the crisis has failed to appreciate the importance of this highly skilled sector.
Businesses have done right by our country during this crisis and the Government must now do right by them. I will continue to hold the Government accountable and call on them to ensure that those in the beauty sector do not continue to be disproportionately affected by the economic hit from this pandemic.
