Lib Dems Call for Furlough Commission to Avoid Unemployment Crisis

Christine has written to the Chancellor warning of the potential catastrophic consequences the withdrawl of Covid support measures - including furlough - will have on businesses and staff.

The letter says: “The UK economy has fared worse than any other G7 country during the pandemic. It is not a record to be proud of. Businesses need certainty if they can plan effectively for their future.

“It is therefore imperative that you react quickly to establish a commission that can provide answers that every business using the Job Retention Scheme and every individual on furlough needs. Hundreds of thousands of families need a change of strategy.”
