The Minister of Finance in Britain, Rishi Sunak, has presented the newest package for the recovery of restaurants in the country, where the government will pay 50% of the bill.
He chose to present this package at the restaurant where the Albanian Eduart Mjeshtri works, from Librazhd.
He chose to work as a waiter in the restaurant of the Albanian with whom he also took pictures.
Sunak said VAT on housing and tourism would be reduced to 5 per cent. The reduction, from 20 per cent so far, will be in effect for the next six months. While presenting the plan, the chancellor said the UK was facing a unique moment because of Covid-19 adding: We need to get creative.
Pubs and restaurants reopened on Saturday after more than three months in solitary confinement, with security measures in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Sunak tried to reassure the public that restaurant attendance is safe by saying the restrictions would not have been lifted if people’s lives were endangered. The discount will not apply to alcohol but to food and soft drinks up to 10 pounds per person. The Treasury said the 50 per cent discount could be used without restriction during August and includes all restaurants, cafes and pubs in the country.
