Extension of furlough to March 2021

Miatta Fahnbulleh on LBC

Miatta spoke to Shelagh Fogarty about the chancellor’s announcement to extend the furlough scheme until March 2021, the need for a stronger social security net to support people already out of work, whether we can expect tax rises as part of the economic recovery and the importance of an effective track and trace system in the UK.

If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
