Response to the Treasury statement on "Expanding Furlough"
We would like to thank the Treasury and the Gaps in Support APPG for their willingness to engage with our plan today. The statement from the Treasury highlighted the important work by the government to support employees and the self-employed during this crisis. Whilst this is very positive, we would also like to work together cooperatively in order to expand the governments support schemes. There are still too many taxpayers who are unable to access the governments schemes. We therefore believe it is in everyone’s interest that we work together on this issue and implement a solution that ensures the governments schemes work for as many people as possible.
