 The Chancellor states:

  • £90 million of business interruption loans approved for nearly 1,000 firms and £1.9 billion corporate finance provided to firms hit by COVID-19
  • current loan scheme extended so more small businesses can benefit
  • lenders banned from requesting personal guarantees on loans under £250,000
  • the new scheme announced to bolster support for larger firms not currently eligible for loans
  • Chancellor emphasizes the importance of banks moving quickly to support the economy, jobs, and businesses

The changes made are after criticism about how the banks were interpreting the scheme and the perceived lack of speed to get loans and overdrafts to businesses.
