Retail NI Welcomes Extension of Furlough

Commenting on the Chancellor’s statement of the expansion of the Furlough Scheme, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“Hopefully this intervention by the Chancellor will give reassurance and confidence to businesses and staff as we approach Christmas. We are now in battle to save as many jobs and businesses as possible and this was the right call by the Chancellor”

The Chancellor also announced an increase in funding for the Executive to provide further support and we will be engaging with Ministers next week on the detail of this”
