Goverment to pay 2/3 of staff wages if retailers forced to shut in new lockdowns

Published 12th Oct 2020

The UK Government will pay two thirds of the wages of staff in retailers and other businesses if they are forced to close under new coronavirus restrictions, the Chancellor has announced.

Rishi Sunak said the expansion of the Jobs Support Scheme would protect jobs and provide “reassurance and a safety net” for people and businesses across the UK in advance of a potentially “difficult winter”.

It comes as ministers are expected to outline a three-tier local lock down system on Monday, which could see hospitality venues in coronavirus hotspots being temporarily closed to combat the spread of the virus.
