COVID-19 Economic Support Package — 14 Oct 2020 at 15:47
The majority of MPs voted against reforming the economic support being provided in response to the COVID-19 pandemic - against incentivising keeping staff employed, against fixing gaps in support for the self-employed, against linking economic support to imposition of new restrictions and against extending a ban on evictions.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- believes the Government should do what it takes to support areas with additional local restrictions, currently the North of England and parts of the Midlands, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, by reforming the Job Support Scheme so it incentivises employers to keep staff on rather than letting them go; ensuring no-one is pushed into poverty when they do the right thing; providing clear, consistent and fair funding that goes hand-in-hand with the imposition of new restrictions, including using the £1.3 billion underspend on the grants fund to support local jobs; fixing gaps in support for the self-employed; and extending the ban on evictions.
