APPG writes again to BEIS calling for industry-wide consultation on reopening guidance

The APPG has written a follow up letter to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in response to their recent correspondence about supporting the hair, beauty and wellness industry though the COVID-19 crisis and reopening phase.

In a letter to the Minister for Business, Kwarsi Kwarteng MP, the APPG Chairs raise concerns that some parts of the industry have not been included in discussions on developing guidance on reopening the industry, particularly mobile workers and spa and wellness facilities.

They also stress that should the forthcoming guidance be considered vague or open to interpretation, or if some parts of the industry are able to open before others, this seriously risks further harming consumer confidence in the industry.

We look forward to receiving the Minister’s response.
