Coronavirus: Letter to Chancellor on Furlough Gap

Today, I have written to the Chancellor to seek clarity on the Job Retention Scheme cut-off point.

I urged the Treasury to put protections in place for those employed after the February 28th cut-off for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. Anyone not on the PAYE roll after this date are ineligible to receive wage supplements from the government if furloughed. This 'Furlough Gap' has understandably concerned many people in Scunthorpe and I hope that the Chancellor will act to make provisions for this unfairly disadvantaged group.
