'Not the right time' - Catering Association hits back at hike in entertainment licence fees

The Catering Association has said it is 'not the right time' for the hike in entertainment licence fees, particularly in the current climate.

Whilst the Government has described the fee increases as accessible to viable businesses, Association president, Gino Jimenez, countered that not as many businesses may be so viable these days, following six months' closure due to the pandemic.

He also highlighted the increased food and drink costs due to the Brexit impact on the supply chain.
