Hair & Barber Council Voices Industry Concerns to Government

Thursday, 19 March 2020 15:09

Hair and Barber Council Registrar, Keith Conniford, has been in contact with the Minister for Small Business and Labour Markets, Paul Scully, to ensure the industry is considered during decision-making plans in relation to Coronavirus.

Keith stressed to the Minister that the hairdressing, barbering and beauty professional industry contributes some £6.6 billion to the UK economy each year, employs upwards of 337,687 individuals across some 50,000 businesses and trains more than 16,000 apprentices. 

Keith said: “Due to the very nature of the industry, we are expecting to be hit hard by the measures being put in place to combat the virus, as people reduce their social contact further over the comings weeks and months. Whilst we understand that these measures are necessary to protect the wellbeing of the nation and know that many sacrifices are being made across the country, we would urge the Government to keep the industry present in mind during this challenging time. 

“We welcome the initiatives announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer to ease the negative impact of the Coronavirus on businesses and self-employed persons, but the industry requires urgent clarification on how they can make full use of this aid. For example, the extension of the business rates holiday and the option of cash grants.”
