Sir Ian Taylor is once again making a plea to the Government.
As an experienced businessman, he says "the economy simply cannot afford to keep replaying the same level 4 restrictions that played out over the past couple of weeks, nor can businesses expect to operate successfully on the international playing fields with an MIQ system that simply has no rules they can play by."
