The owner of G-A-Y nightclub has officially launched legal action against the government’s hospitality curfew.
The restrictions were imposed on the 24 September 2020 in order to limit the spread of coronavirus across the UK.
Joseph, who owns four late night venues across England, told Sky News that the law “makes absolutely no sense” and does “the opposite of protecting people”.
Joseph also said: “The government has failed to show why the 10pm curfew was put in place and has published no scientific evidence to substantiate its implementation.”
It comes one week after 100 hospitality leaders penned an open letter to the government requesting that the curfew should be reviewed every three weeks and removed if it is not effective.
Catering today has contacted Jeremy Joseph for a comment.
