Jason thanked the Chancellor for extending Furlough to March 2021 but also asked him to look at further support for freelancers, including musicians, and a beer duty cut to support local microbreweries.
Jason McCartney MP
May I thank the Chancellor for extending the furlough scheme to March and for the cash grants for hospitality and other businesses that have had to close across my constituency?
Will he continue to look at what support he can give to freelancers, including musicians, and company directors?
Will he consider a beer duty cut to support my local microbreweries?
Rishi Sunak MP
I know my hon. Friend is a champion for his local brewing industry.
The future of tax policy will be for Budgets.
With regard to the self-employed, many of the people he mentioned will benefit from the increased generosity and timeliness of the self-employment support grants that we have announced today and before.
They will be paid out before the end of the year up to the value of £7,500 per person.
