Ian Price, CBI Wales Director, said:
“Businesses affected know public health must come first and have been doing everything they can to keep staff and customers safe, whether in pubs, shops, or factories.
“However, there is no doubt that this news will come as a disappointment for many firms - particularly as it affects the Welsh capital’s hospitality, leisure and tourism sectors.
“We know the Welsh Government cannot stand by as infection rates rise and that taking action now can help to maintain confidence and avoid further restrictions in the months ahead.
“While the Chancellor has taken bold and decisive action to support jobs and companies’ cashflow across the UK, Welsh firms remain under extreme pressure. That’s why we need the UK and Welsh governments to work together and use whatever tools at their disposal to protect lives and livelihoods in the coming weeks and months.”
