Cumbria's Liberal Democrat MP Tim Farron says local hotels, B&Bs and holiday cottages are losing money because of cancellations from people living in areas that are under the tier three restrictions.
The Westmorland and Lonsdale MP, whose constituency covers a large part of the Lake District, says Cumbria's tourism businesses have lost bookings from Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester.
Mr Farron says he has been "inundated" with businesses telling him that jobs are at risk.
