"Councils are able to get support to the arts and culture organisations that need it most, quickly and effectively – especially the smallest organisations and freelancers."

The economic impact of coronavirus is hitting renters very hard and pushing decent housing further from many people’s reach. The £3.8bn price tag of this tax cut could have been far better spent on raising housing benefit and building social housing. @thefabians

STAMP DUTY CUTS A stamp duty cut may be good news for housing developers and people looking to sell their home, but it will do little to help first-time buyers who are shut out of the housing market by economic uncertainty and tough new mortgage requirements 1/2

EMPLOYMENT & SKILLS SUPPORT Jobcentre Plus, adult skills and local government have all suffered huge cuts over the last 10 years. Despite the best efforts of public servants, it will be very hard to deliver the extra support announced today at the scale and pace required.

It failed to offer anything for other businesses now required to operate below capacity or stay shut due to public health measures, including hairdressers, gyms and music venues. Workers in these sectors face a furlough cliff-edge in October without extra targeted support. 2/2

HARD HIT SECTORS The chancellor’s statement provided some welcome support for the hard-hit hospitality sector but a restaurant discount and VAT cuts won’t count for much without a public health response that gives consumers confidence to eat out. 1/2

REACTION: FAMILIES IN HARDSHIP There was nothing today for the millions of people who will sadly end up unemployed this year, even after the chancellor’s interventions. Families losing their jobs will be thrust into hardship and hunger because universal credit pays so little.

COMMENT: ‘kickstarter’ jobs should include guaranteed training for young people "Young workers must be trained to use new technology as part of these placements, so they are equipped to do the jobs of the future" @thefabians 1/4

.@thefabians' gen sec @andrew_harrop is calling for the government's jobs guarantee scheme to include training for young workers. Our Commission on Workers and Tech has been examining automation in the context of the crisis - see our report published later this summer for more https://t.co/yEO63TRIXZ
