BCC responds to boost for Coronavirus business support schemes

Posted: 3rd April 2020

Welcoming Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s announcement on measures to boost financial support for businesses affected by Coronavirus, BCC Director General Adam Marshall said:

“We’re pleased that the Chancellor is listening and responding to the real-world concerns of firms across the UK who are urgently trying to access financial support.

“Improvements to the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan scheme will help firms get access to cash more quickly, and the announcement of a new loan scheme for mid-sized companies closes a significant gap in existing support.

“Chambers of Commerce will continue to work with government and the banks to ensure that support reaches businesses at the front line.”
