Chi visits local guesthouse in National B&B Week
Today Chi Onwurah Member of Parliament for Newcastle Central visited The Brighton Guest House in Newcastle as part of this year’s National B&B Week (18-24 March 2019).
“ There are over 25,000 B&Bs, guesthouses and small family-run hotels across the UK, and many in Newcastle providing quality accommodation for tourists and those undertaking temporary work in the area.
“ B&Bs are a great success story – home-grown small businesses with a turnover of well over £2 billion.
Ms Onwurah believes that the often excellent service at reasonable cost provided by B&Bs should be celebrated and not be forgotten.
She is keen to support such local businesses which are too often put under undue pressure by large online bookings companies using their market power to demand special payments, additional discounts or excessive commissions. Ms Onwurah want to see a level playing field!
