Suffolk Chamber responds to chancellor's announcement
“The figures revealed by the chancellor show the full impact of COVID19 on the UK economy.
“However, Suffolk Chamber remains confident that with the right support, businesses in the county and elsewhere will be able to recover in the longer-term.
“But what is needed to restart business investment and employment plans and to boost the necessary confidence in employers long-term planning, is a clear strategy from the Government to deliver a quick turnaround and accurate test and trace system and a comprehensive rollout of the available vaccines from early next year onwards.
“The £18bn that the Government will be spend on testing, PPE and vaccines is welcome, but the delivery of all of these elements needs to avoid the stop/start stutterings of 2020.”
