5. East Devon business update

Businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors, across the country, are to receive a one-off grant worth up to £9,000, the Chancellor has announced.

Rishi Sunak revealed the news today (Tuesday, January 5) after the Prime Minister ordered non-essential businesses to close until at least February half-term.

An additional £594million discretionary fund has also been made available to support other impacted businesses.
