Rishi Sunak unveils half-price meals and reduced VAT
Rishi Sunak has announced a raft of measures worth up to £30 billion as part of his plan to rescue the economy in the aftermath of coronavirus.
Notable parts of the plan include the “eat out to help out” scheme which will see the government offer 50% off, up to £10 per head, on meals out on certain days of the week during August.
Mr Sunak said he wants to get pubs, restaurants, cafes and B&Bs “bustling again”.
As such, there is also a reduction in VAT from 20% to 5% for the next six months on food, accommodation and attractions.
