Mike Cherry, chair of the Federation of Compact Organizations, termed it a “swift and significant intervention” but warned corporations “are going through a very tough winter”.

“Today’s assist bundle is the flipside of the coin to Tuesday’s Covid-19 small business limitations,” he said.

Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, head of the Confederation of British Business, said the intervention would help you save “hundreds of hundreds of viable employment this wintertime.”

“It is right to focus on assistance on employment with a foreseeable future, but can only be section-time although demand from customers stays flat.”

Nevertheless, economists warned the assist will only cushion the blow the economy faces from a 2nd wave.

Ruth Gregory, economist at Funds Economics, said: “These actions will not reduce the strike totally. That is why we feel GDP will stagnate in the past 3 months of the year.”
