Chamber responds to enhanced Coronavirus support for businesses

Commenting on the Chancellor’s announcement of further support for businesses and jobs as Coronavirus restrictions increase, Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber Chief Executive, Andrew Denniff said:

 “Whilst this is a very welcome improvement in the support available to businesses struggling with the impact of increasing restrictions, we will continue to press for greater support for those experiencing big falls in demand as a result of new restrictions, and a number of the steps announced today, including the lowering of employer contributions and the number of hours worked needed to qualify for the scheme have responded directly to that.

“We will continually push for support to be commensurate with the restrictions imposed, both on self-employed and businesses to help them get through the difficult months ahead.”
