The government is #HereForCulture to ensure that our audiences will yet again experience Shakespeare’s poetry in our wooden ‘O’, an emblem of survival spanning 400 years, a plague, and now a pandemic – a reminder that we will come through this time and be together once again. ⭕ https://t.co/ci3aT7Sa3N

Back in July @RishiSunak and I visited @The_Globe to promise we'd be #HereForCulture Today we're delivering - with £3m to help save this world famous theatre. Part of over £500m allocated from our £1.57bn Culture Recovery Fund to nearly 2,500 orgs of all types and sizes https://t.co/yCK7q5rgcm

Today we're awarding £75 million from our Culture Recovery Fund to protect some of the nation’s most significant stages, from the Globe to the Old Vic and Sheffield Crucible. 70% of the funding awarded is going to organisations outside London. Read more: https://t.co/VdiJaQOK4U

There have been some misleading comments in recent days stating our more generous Job Support Scheme is only available to businesses facing tier 2 restrictions. ❌This is wrong. ✅ The scheme is UK-wide and available to businesses in all sectors – no matter what tier they are in.

Quoted @seanfarrington

.@BestWesternGB boss @rjppaterson on @bbc5live says if @RishiSunak had changed the Job Support Scheme sooner it would have saved jobs at the hotel chain. Will the chancellor allow businesses to re-employ staff who were on the payroll for September 23rd, to claim the new cash?

NEW: The Treasury have confirmed to me that companies that have made staff redundant since they the Job Support Scheme payroll cut-off of September 23rd, CAN re-employ those staff and take advantage of the new, bigger wage subsidies. https://t.co/7PwbVPqtmZ

Watch today’s live press conference with me and the Prime Minister @BorisJohnson below👇 https://t.co/k9dkJtaT9A

🗣️@BCCAdam: "This is a very significant improvement in the support available to businesses struggling with the impact of increasing restrictions across the UK." See our response to @RishiSunak's announcement of further support👇 https://t.co/0zpx48IpXz

Huge and very welcome intervention by Chancellor - JSS scheme evolves significantly to reflect changed circumstances. Sees employer minimum hours of at least 20% and top up of 5% (down from 55% previously). Just saved hundreds of thousands of jobs in hospitality and supply chain

We're doubling self-employed grants from 20% to 40%, meaning the maximum grant will go up from £1,875 to £3,750.

Grants are available for all self-employed people (all tiers) who've stopped trading or have a significant fall in trade, with two further payments to come. https://t.co/mUB7hFfsXt

We're making the Open Job Support Scheme more generous to protect jobs during lower demand.

- Government now pays at least 62% for hours not worked
- Employer contribution cut from 33% to 5%
- Employees now take home at least 73% of pay for working a new minimum 20% of hours https://t.co/bSXr0zup6d

In businesses legally required to close, as I’ve already announced, employers will pay people two thirds of their normal salary where they can’t work for a week or more; and the government will cover 100% of those costs. https://t.co/gk1b7f9Muu

2/ These are additional to the grants of up to £3,000 available for businesses who have been legally required to close. They'll also be retrospective grants. So businesses can backdate them to August, if they’ve been operating in areas with enhanced restrictions since then.

1/ I’m introducing a new grants scheme for businesses impacted by Tier 2 restrictions, even if they aren’t legally closed.

I’m providing enough funding to give every business in hospitality, leisure & accommodation a grant worth up to £2,100 every month Tier2 restrictions apply. https://t.co/HvVtz9WReq

Watch my statement to @UKParliament, setting out additional support to protect jobs and businesses over the coming months. 👇 #PlanForJobs https://t.co/Nmab67KqsI

Our stamp duty cut helped boost house sales by more than 20% in September, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs as buyers spend their cash savings on their new homes From removal companies to decorators, builders & furniture sellers, every sale counts https://t.co/raYvA44sKE https://t.co/ayOMHjxMGD

33% of homebuyers plan to spend their savings from the tax break on home improvement and renovations, boosting business and protecting jobs #PlanForJobs https://t.co/J34rzf7yiX

November’s spending review will cover the coming year, focusing everything on fighting Covid and our #PlanforJobs. We’ll also invest in our future - the NHS, schools and infrastructure. Read more here: https://t.co/Qcy1enScmj
