North West MEP says government reopening plan ‘unfair’ to some sectors

A Midlands/North West MEP has criticised the government’s reopening plan saying it’s unfair to certain sectors.

Restrictions are to be eased for nightclubs, however, Maria Walsh feels the same does not apply to cultural venues.

According to a resolution passed today in the European Parliament, the cultural and creative sector in the EU lost €199 billion in 2020.

MEP, Maria Walsh, says a hybrid of attending venues in person, and reaching out around the world through digital, is the future.
