Abstract

News by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, on Tuesday that the UK Government will provide an assistance package to business, including over £330 billion of loans and loan guarantees, the scrapping of business rates for one year for sectors such as retail and hospitality, cash grants of up to £25,000 for SMEs and a three-month mortgage “holiday” for home-owners was a real volte-face for the Government.
