What the Petitions Committee is doing

Petition Repeal the decision to implement compulsory face coverings in English shops.

Reverse the decision to implement compulsory face coverings in English Shops.

More details

Implementing compulsory face maks in English shops could have a severely bad affect on the UK economy. This decision could deter many people from shopping in the retail sector and severely hinder the wider economic recovery after easing of the UK lockdown.

Making face masks mandatory in shops could force retail businesses towards financial hardship because of a decline in footfall and revenues. This could result in mass unemployment throughout the retail sector.
