Lucy Powell – 2020 Comments on British Chambers of Commerce Report

The comments made by Lucy Powell, the Shadow Minister for Business and Consumers, on 1 October 2020.

Businesses across the country are under severe pressure, redundancies are piling up, and the hospitality sector is in freefall. Yet despite public health restrictions tightening, this Government is risking mass unemployment by allowing economic support to get dangerously out of sync. This short-term approach is illogical, and will have devastating consequences for our economy.
