The deadline for TIGA’s Survey collecting responses on how COVID-19 is impacting businesses and employees, and what further help is needed from the Government, has been extended to Wednesday 15 April 2020.
On Tuesday 17 March 2020 and Friday 20 March 2020, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced a range of economic measures in response to coronavirus. Given the need for social distancing, the Government’s measures are targeted at the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors. However, the Chancellor labeled the pandemic an ‘economic emergency’ and said he will do ‘whatever it takes’.
