Martin Couchman, Deputy CEO of The British Hospitality Association says:
"The British Hospitality Association warmly welcomes news from London Underground that it will operate 24 hours a day at weekends from 2015 as part of plans for a “21st-century tube service.”
"This is excellent news for London hospitality businesses, not to mention tourists visiting the capital and, of course, the people who live and work here. London is a 24-hour city with world leading hotels, tourist attractions and a fantastically vibrant bar, club and restaurant scene. An Underground service which supports and embraces this can only be good news. The British Hospitality Association has been campaigning for a transport system which reflects the needs of real Londoners and visitors to the capital for some time so this announcement is definitely a good step forward."
