Following the announcement today that the Government would be extending the Job Retention Scheme, Jack Dromey MP has welcomed the announcement but also called on the Chancellor to ensure that the scheme lasts for “as long as is necessary” in order to protect businesses who face unprecedented pressures due to the Covid-crisis.

Jack Dromey MP said:

“I called on the Government back in March to introduce a Job Retention Scheme to help businesses cope with the Coronavirus crisis and they rightly introduced one. It has no doubt saved hundreds of thousands of jobs in hard-hit industries.

Today the Government announced that they will extend the scheme further. I spoke in the Commons today to welcome that announcement. Such support is critical for employers like JLR in Erdington to be able to keep providing high-skilled jobs to local workers. That support must continue for as long as is necessary.”
