2. Next steps
The Prime Minister has outlined the roadmap out of the current lockdown. Providing strict conditions are being met, shops, hairdressers, gyms and outdoor hospitality will reopen on 12 April. You can read the details. The 3rd March Budget will outline the next stage in the Government’s Plan for Jobs including further detail on economic support to protect jobs and livelihoods across the UK. Please be patient while we wait for Government guidance about further support for business, including any support covering the period from 15th February.
