Co-Chairs of the APPG on Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing, Carolyn Harris MP and Judith Cummins MP, have sent to the Prime Minister to express their dismay at the beauty industry being continually undermined in Parliament and overlooked by the Government.
The APPG has been fighting for the thousands of people that the beauty industry employs, predominantly women, as beauty, spa and wellbeing facilities have been given no indication as to when they can re-open their doors again, despite many other similar services such as hairdressing being allowed to open.
They are also dismayed by the Prime Minister’s repeated flippant and derogatory references to the multi-faceted multi-billion pound industry as ‘nail bars’. The APPG is urging the Government to:
- Recognise that the financial ruin of the beauty industry is no laughing matter
- Immediately bring forward a plan to give this industry certainty
- Take immediate action to end chauvinistic behaviour in parliament which both of the above would assist with.
