Covid in Scotland: Business leaders welcome furlough extension

Scottish business leaders have said the extension of the furlough scheme has given firms a "glimmer of hope" that they can survive the Covid-19 crisis.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak said the UK government would continue to pay up to 80% of a person's wage, to a maximum of £2,500, until the end of March.

The Federation of Small Businesses said the announcement was the "right move" and would "save Scottish jobs".

The Scottish Chambers of Commerce also welcomed the chancellor's statement.

Its chief executive, Dr Liz Cameron, said: "This announcement gives Scottish businesses a glimmer of hope that we may be able to survive and work through this crisis."

However, Dr Cameron said there had to be movement towards reopening the economy and warned that furlough alone would not be enough to save many businesses.

She added: "The chancellor must continue and expand his commitment to providing businesses with guaranteed grants support to help businesses recover.

"The Scottish government should continue to follow an evidence-led approach and work in partnership with industry before applying additional, harsher economic restrictions.

"That also means expanding test and trace capability, which is a key enabler to keeping the economy open."

Scottish Licensed Trade Association spokesman Paul Waterson said the announcement gave a "glimmer of hope".

'Eleventh hour'

He added: "However, let us not lose sight of the fact that direct support for businesses is still woefully inadequate and unless this is increased substantially, there is still the threat of business failure leading to the loss of thousands of jobs and jeopardising the intentions of the chancellor's extended support package announced today to save jobs.

"The announcement today will give the industry a bit of a breathing space, but the government needs to plan ahead and give industries much earlier indications of what support will be available rather than making announcements at the eleventh hour."

Marc Crothall, chief executive of the Scottish Tourism Alliance, said the furlough extension would be a "huge relief" to the sector, but would not be enough on its own to help it survive.

He said: "Both UK and Scottish governments must continue to recognise the urgent need for more robust funding to be channelled into the sector by way of additional grants so that businesses can remain solvent through to Spring 2021."

The furlough scheme subsidises the wages of people who cannot do their jobs, either because their workplace is closed or because there is no longer enough work for them.

As part of the revised scheme, anyone made redundant after 23 September can be rehired and put back on furlough.
