No more games of wait and see with people’s lives

Responding to the Resolution Foundation report*, finding almost two million workers have not worked for at least six months of the crisis, Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson Christine Jardine MP said: “These figures show exactly why the Government needs to act decisively and the budget will tell us if they have the courage to do what it takes to rescue the economy. We need bold and ambitious investment plans to create jobs, or else risk a lost generation which will hurt our country for decades to come.”

“There can be no more games of wait and see with people’s lives. We need long-term plans for furlough and vital financial support for those who have already suffered too much in this pandemic.”
