Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Mario Furore (NI), Dino Giarrusso (NI), Laura Ferrara (NI), Daniela Rondinelli (NI), Chiara Gemma (NI), Rosa D'Amato (NI)
 Subject: Suspension of the Services Directive in the beach resort sector

Does the Commission plan to grant a suspension in respect of state beach concessions?

The current situation arising from the COVID‑19 crisis has hit tourism businesses hard, and activity levels are expected to fall – in Italy this could be by as much as 70% compared to last year. More particularly, the beach resort sector is suffering both because of the uncertainty in the tourism industry and because it is not possible to access bank loans owing to the Services Directive imposing ties as regards the expiry of concessions.

Does the Commission not feel that at this juncture it would be appropriate to suspend the Services Directive in the beach resort sector, thereby allowing tangible support for existing activities?
