Comment from Terence Boniface (Advanced Manufacturing and Services), BEIS

25th March 2020 | News

“Further to Matt Hancocks confirmation yesterday evening on Government direction on the circumstances people should leave there homes during the current pandemic, an additional advice note has been compiled which has sought to clarify those businesses which should close. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-businesses-and-premises-to-close/further-businesses-and-premises-to-close-guidance

We are aware the confusion that was caused by the lack of clarity following yesterday’s announcement, and I do apologise for any unnecessary issues this has caused with your members and concerns in their workforce. There is no direction for Manufacturing businesses to close currently. As stated yesterday – if it is impossible to work from home, people able to go to work. This will clearly apply to those who do manual labour, such as in the construction and manufacturing industries.”

Terence Boniface, BEIS
