The news reports, based on sources, that the Tory policymakers may stretch job retention programs beyond January 01 to support businesses impacted by no-deal Brexit disruption.

“Businesses could access wage support, grants and emergency loans already set up by finance minister Rishi Sunak to deal with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic,” said the piece.
