£4.6bn lockdown grant package

Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced a new 4.6 billion pound package of grants to support businesses through the latest national lockdown.

UK businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors are to be given one-off grants worth up to £9,000.

The payments are expected to support 600,000 business properties across the UK. A further £594 million will be made available to councils and devolved nations to support businesses not covered by the new grants.

The Chancellor said: 'The new strain of the virus presents us all with a huge challenge, and whilst the vaccine is being rolled out, we have needed to tighten restrictions further.

'Throughout the pandemic we've taken swift action to protect lives and livelihoods and . . .  we're announcing a further cash injection to support businesses and jobs until the spring.

'This will help businesses to get through the months ahead - and crucially it will help sustain jobs so workers can be ready to return when they are able to reopen.'
