Stephen Barclay – 2021 Comments on Supporting the Union

The comments made by Stephen Barclay, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, on 24 June 2021.

The UK government is fully committed to supporting the entirety of the UK throughout the pandemic – with an additional £28 billion for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland since the start of the pandemic.

Over the past year we’ve protected jobs and businesses across the UK with furlough and other support schemes, our vaccine rollout is now helping us unlock the economy, and our Plan for Jobs is levelling up opportunity and helping people back into work.
