Lucy Powell – 2021 Comments on End of Financial Support to Business

The comments made by Lucy Powell, the Shadow Business and Consumers Minister, on 9 February 2021.

The Government’s failure to ensure economic support is adequate and goes hand in hand with public health measures has meant we’ve seen the worst recession of any major economy and the worst growth.

The £50 billion business bombshell firms face must be defused before it blows a hole in our economy. We need a smarter furlough scheme, and better support for businesses, to secure jobs and get Britain on the road to recovery.
