Greater Manchester’s night-time economy adviser Sacha Lord has begun legal proceedings against the government over the closure of hospitality venues.
He stated that a judicial review began on Tuesday 20 October 2020 into the legality of implementing emergency restrictions on the hospitality sector i.e. closing pubs and bars not serving food “without any evidence” it would bring down transmissions of Covid-19.
A pre-action letter had been filed as he awaits response from the Health Secretary Matt Hancock
The legal challenge is supported by organisations including The Night Time Industries Association, UK Hospitality and various prominent Greater Manchester venues.
