Provide furlough, loans and grants to Events Industry

Provide furlough, loans and grants to Events Industry

To provide the previous furlough scheme and additional Grants and Loans to events industry, conferencing, exhibitions and other Staff and Businesses

Why is this important?

The Events industry has been hardest hit during the pandemic. Locked down since March they have seen none of the recent relaxing of restrictions that have enable other businesses to get back to work, and now the original furlough scheme is coming to an end, the industry faces approx 600,000 people unemployed and thousands of businesses collapsing as workers will not be eligible for the new winter scheme as they cannot work at all. We want the existing, simple meaningful furlough scheme to continue to support the Events industry, staff and Businesses
