U-turn on Table Service welcome

U-turn on Table Service welcome
The Covid requirement for table service in forecourts and convenience stores won't work - Retail NI welcomes Executive u-turn

The NI Executive has reversed its position on table service for self-serve outlets. Retail NI has welcomed the Executive’s decision to drop proposals for table service only in self-service cafes and coffee shops within retail premises.

Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“Retail NI had urged the Executive to drop this rule and we welcome this decision as these regulations would have been unworkable for our members and extremely difficult to enforce”

“Moving forward, the Executive Office needs to consult with business directly before they produce regulations which will have a big impact on the economy”
