To ask Her Majesty's Government whether venues at airports and ports have been removed from the list of exemptions to the restaurant curfew from 10pm to 5am; if so, why; and what assessment they have made of the impact of that decision on social distancing at airports.
21 October 2020
Hospitality venues in airports, maritime ports, the Eurotunnel terminal, Motorway Service Areas and catering facilities onboard transport services are exempt from the 22:00-05:00 hospitality closure restriction. These venues, however, cannot sell alcohol during this curfew period, but alcohol can continue to be sold to passengers seated on an aircraft at any time. Additional restrictions apply to hospitality venues in areas where the Local COVID Alert Level is Very High. The aforementioned venues are not exempt from these restrictions.
