Increasing support for regulation!

Increasing support for regulation!


At a BEIS webinar recently, we were introduced to the new Minister for Small Business, Jane Hunt MP. Taking over from Minister Paul Scully who has been promoted to the department for ‘Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’, Minister Hunt was an extremely interested and personable host for this webinar, and her enthusiasm for her new role in the Personal Care department was obvious!

Considering she had only been in the role for a little over a week, she was very well briefed and was particularly interested in the conversation I had with her concerning regulation.

I was allowed the time to give her an overview of the current state of the industry and to outline my concerns for the sector moving forward if we do not become regulated. The Minister then asked some questions, the final one of which posed the following to all the representative organisations on the webinar.

The Minister asked for a show of hands as to how many organisations/people supported mandatory registration……. 100% of attendees showed their hands! Great!

Now is the time to finally make this happen, so please join the Hair and Barber Council now to be part of the decision-making process for the industry moving forward! To join log on to;
