🎥 Financial support for Small Businesses, self-employed and freelancers

Jason raised the issues facing Small Businesses, self-employed and freelancers and asked for the Chancellor to return to the House this week.

Jason McCartney MP

We are all looking for clarity in these uncertain times. I have just been contacted by the owners of a café and a hairdressing business in my constituency, who have heard the strong advice for people not to frequent their businesses, putting them at great risk of not being viable. A lot has happened since the Budget last Wednesday.

Does the Health Secretary agree that it would now be useful for the Chancellor to return to the House this week, and clearly to lay out the latest raft of measures available to support large and small businesses, employees, the self-employed and freelancers?

Matt Hancock MP

I will absolutely take that concern directly back to my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
