Ed Miliband responds to new study showing 1 in 3 employers likely to make redundancies over next 3 months

Ed Miliband MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, responding to a new study showing 1 in 3 employers are likely to make redundancies over the next 3 months, said:

“Businesses are facing massive challenges in this crisis, livelihoods are on the line, and the Government is writing off whole sectors as not ‘viable’.

“But the reason that businesses are struggling is because they are doing the right thing and following public health restrictions.

“The Government must abandon their sink or swim mentality, help businesses and workers through this crisis and urgently act to stem the flow of job losses and the risk of mass redundancies.”
