Local MP calls on Solihull eateries to join ‘Eat Out to Help Out’

Julian Knight MP has urged local restaurants to register for ‘Eat Out to Help Out’, the Government’s new scheme aimed at protecting jobs in the hospitality industry and encouraging people to safely return to dining out.

Customers do not need a voucher as participating establishments will just remove the discount from their bill. Businesses reclaim the discounted amount through an online service, supported by HMRC.

Restaurants wishing to take part can register at Gov.uk.

Commenting on the scheme, Julian Knight said:

“It hasn’t been fun being cooped up at home for months, but it has been an especially challenging time for our hospitality sector. I’m very pleased that the Chancellor has launched this programme to help all of us keep our favourite restaurants in business.

“I want to encourage as many Solihull eateries as possible to take advantage of Eat Out to Help Out, and urge local residents who can safely do so to join me in showing our favourite places a big show of support over the next few months.”
