NHBF CEO Responds to Government Announcement on Energy Prices

Responding to Government announcement on the Energy Price Guarantee for families and businesses, Richard Lambert, NHBF CEO said: 

“We’re pleased that the government has responded to our call for emergency energy support for hair and beauty businesses over the next six months. Businesses now urgently need clarity on the details of the scheme in order to help them to plan for the coming months. For the majority of hair & beauty businesses, energy is one of the two biggest overheads, so we will be pressing the government to consider hair & beauty as one of the “vulnerable industries” that will be in most need of support after the initial six month period.We’ll look at the detail the full package when it’s announced. Meanwhile we are still calling for further support in the form of 100% business rates relief to help businesses with cash flow issues and the cost of doing business crisis from the fiscal statement later this month.”
