Westminster City Council needs to ensure al-fresco dining can take place on every night of
the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. The gap between national and local government actions
has resulted in a national Government campaign operating Monday to Wednesday and
some of our streets supporting al-fresco dining Wednesday to Sunday. This gap needs to be urgently closed before Eat Out To Help Out ends.
We’ve today written to Westminster City Council asking for an impact assessment to be carried out to assess the risks to health and social distancing posed by very large numbers returning to the city as we come out of lockdown.
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have ceased all campaigning and are asking our members and supporters to concentrate on non-political efforts to help the community weather this crisis. If you are volunteering, the advice from Westminster City Council is to help out as close to home as possible.
Here is how you can help:
Last Thursday night, we hosted a packed Thank You Party for all the dedicated and generous people who helped in our General Election campaign for Cities of London and Westminster, and for our outstanding candidate, Chuka Umunna, who inspired us to climb Everest at this election. And on Tuesday night we held our Annual General Meeting, where we appointed a new Executive Committee and heard from our brilliant candidate for Mayor of London, Siobhan Benita.
A message from Anton Georgiou, the Liberal Democrat candidate aiming to be elected in Thursday's council by-election in Alperton, North-West London:
Chuka was joined by Liberal Democrat London Mayoral candidate Siobhan Benita in Pimlico for a morning canvass session to spread the message that a constituency poll in the Observer shows the Lib Dems can win in the Cities of London & Westminster.
