Consultation process

This additional funding has been made available by Government as an emergency measure to support businesses which have been required to close to restart. 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.
