UKHOSPITALITY RESPONDS TO MARTYN’S LAW ANNOUNCEMENT


The Home Office has today announced Martyn’s Law, which aims to scale up preparedness for, and protection from, terrorist attacks. The law will require venues to take steps to improve public safety and will be dependant on the size of venue and the activity taking place. 

In response, UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “Protecting customers and staff is a number one priority for venues, who want to ensure that the great experiences hospitality offers also comes with the best possible safety and security for all. 

“UKHospitality has been engaging with Government over the past year to ensure that the aims of Martyn’s Law can be achieved in a way that is proportionate and practical for venues and we’ll continue to do that throughout the legislative process. UKHospitality will continue working with members on comprehensive guidance on compliance and implementation.”
