Nightclubs to get lifeline under Job Support Scheme - but curfew-hit pubs won't qualify


Nightclubs have been handed a lifeline by the government after it extended the Job Support Scheme to closed venues. Chancellor Rishi Sunak revealed that venues such as nightclubs and stripclubs, which have been closed since March, will be able to receive grants for up to two thirds of their workers' wages.

However, the UK-wide six-month scheme will only apply to businesses forced to close as a result of local lockdowns or national restrictions.

The scheme, which is due to start on November 1, will offer grants of up to £2,100 a month per worker. Pubs which have had their opening hours restricted by local lockdowns will not be eligible for the support.
