The High Court is considering evidence in a case brought by Sacha Lord, the night-time economy adviser for Greater Manchester and a co-founder of Parklife festival, and Hugh Osmond, the founder of Punch Taverns and a former boss at Pizza Express to try to force the UK government to bring forward the reopening date for pubs and restaurants indoors.
Pubs and restaurants in England were allowed to welcome customers again from 12 April and the government has set out a timetable aiming to allow hospitality customers indoors in England no earlier than 17 May, although still with restrictions.
However, the Claimants argue there is no justification or scientific basis for hospitality to be kept closed for five weeks after non-essential retailers in England were allowed to serve customers indoors from 12 April.
