Thewliss MP warned businesses could be forced to make thousands of people redundant. The SNP Treasury spokeswoman said Sunak risked causing another “wave of job losses” and that it was crucial that full furlough support at 80 per cent of wages, and the business rates freeze, are extended for as long as is necessary.

Thewliss said: “When Rishi Sunak threatened to cut support prematurely last autumn, businesses began laying off workers - and by the time he made an eleventh hour U-turn it was too late for many families who had already lost their jobs and livelihoods.“The Tories have made the same damaging mistakes repeatedly throughout the pandemic - they must not do it again.
