Reaction to business support measures

“We welcome the measures from the Chancellor, which we have been asking for since the Plan B restrictions were announced. 


“They will provide some respite to the businesses who have been hit hardest by the latest Covid measures.  However, if the restrictions persist or are tightened further, then a wider support package, equal to the scale of any new measures, would need to be put in place.


“The Chancellor and his team have engaged with our colleagues at the British Chambers of Commerce recently, and we’ve been able to highlight particular experiences facing businesses at this difficult time.


“With the Omicron variant putting more pressures on public health and the economy, the difficulties may persist for some time to come and so it’s important to get the grants out as quickly as possible.”
