Consultation process

This additional funding has been made available by Government as an emergency measure to support businesses which are required to close at short notice as the measures took effect on 05 November. Time does not permit business consultation as awards need to be made urgently, but awards will be made in accordance with existing and future government guidance and the delegation sought permits the scheme to be adjusted if that is found to be necessary or desirable.
