Rishi Sunak to announce £500m ‘plan for jobs’ extension

The Guardian says Rishi Sunak will announce a £500m extension to his “plan for jobs” on Monday as the government tries to avoid a surge in unemployment after the furlough scheme came to an end.

The chancellor will use his speech at the Conservative party conference in Manchester to promise extra support in finding a job for the over-50s and workers coming off furlough. Sunak is expected to claim he is “doubling down” on his 2020 promise to do “whatever it takes” to support people through the crisis.

However, the government is pressing ahead with its decision to remove the £20-a-week uplift to universal credit despite warnings from charities and campaigners that it will increase poverty.
