£330bn support package – comment

Commenting on the Government’s new economic support package, Dave Miller, client account manager at Spicerhaart Corporate Sales, said: “Less than a week since the Budget and the Government has already been forced to dramatically increase the scale of economic support in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

“The threat the Covid-19 virus poses – not just to people’s health but to the economy – is becoming clearer by the day and the Government needs to be able to react quickly.

“The additional measures they have announced today will go some way to helping business and homeowners affected by the crisis but, as the Chancellor himself pointed out, they need to be ready to provide more assistance as the situation unfolds over the coming weeks and months.”
