Helen calls for targeted extension of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, I have been contacted by constituents facing a devastating loss of income. Whilst the Government’s job-retention scheme and self-employed income support scheme protected many people from severe financial hardship, I have long been calling for gaps in both schemes to be closed and for a more flexible approach.

We are now just weeks away from the end of both schemes, with no safety net remaining for the hundreds of thousands of people still relying on the support. Earlier this week, I called on the Chancellor to prevent catastrophic job losses, abandon his one size fits all approach, and provide the targeted support needed to save jobs in Dulwich and West Norwood >>
