BCC responds to Government’s Covid-19 recovery strategy and workplace guidance

12th May 2020

Commenting on the publication of the UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery plan and associated workplace guidance, BCC Director General Adam Marshall said:

"This is a significant step forward in terms of the information available for businesses, who will now need to digest the detail. The guidance signals big changes for the way that many businesses operate, and some firms will now need time to plan and speak to their employees so that they can return to work safely."

"Alongside this guidance, businesses urgently need clarity on the future of government support schemes, which must be adapted to help those firms who need to remain closed for an extended period or face reduced capacity or demand”.
