Rishi Sunak – 2020 Comments on Job Support Scheme Being Expanded

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 12 October 2020.

Throughout the crisis the driving force of our economic policy has not changed. I have always said that we will do whatever is necessary to protect jobs and livelihoods as the situation evolves.

The expansion of the Job Support Scheme will provide a safety net for businesses across the UK who are required to temporarily close their doors, giving them the right support at the right time.
