Breaking News ! An Eat Out to Help Out-style discount scheme could be launched this winter to try and boost the hospitality industry. The popular scheme, in August, gave diners 50 per cent of their meal up to £10 It was aimed at encouraging the public to support pubs, cafes and restaurants crippled by the coronanvirus pandemic. Now the Manchester Evening News reports that a government minister told MPs in the House of Commons that the idea for another scheme is being kept 'under review'. Tory MP Steve Double told MPs that the hospitality industry in his constituency faces a big challenge heading into winter. He asked whether the chancellor would consider something similar to the successful Eat Out to Help Out scheme to be run in winter in order to "help as many businesses as possible survive and be here for next summer". Financial secretary to the Treasury Jesse Norman replied: “I would say that there is this wider package… of course the Treasury keeps all these measures under review… but it is a pretty formidable combination of VAT reduction, business rates relief and of course billions in tax deferrals and loans.” Brits ate more than 100 million meals during August as part of the discount scheme, according to the Treasury.
