Our local pubs are in trouble.
The coronavirus pandemic has meant that all pubs in our community have had to close their doors over the last year, with some facing permanent closure due to lost revenue and the gaps in financial support.
The Conservative government have failed to provide enough certainty and support to our local pubs, risking leaving a gaping hole in our community and a loss of a wonderful part of our city’s heritage.
Oxford Liberal Democrats are calling for immediate support to save our local pubs. We are demanding:
- Recognise the vital community role pubs play in our city
- Extend the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme for the hospitality sector for the duration of social distancing measures
