Chancellor Rishi Sunak on Job Support Scheme and helping UK workers

The UK chancellor has announced a new scheme which will see some workers get three quarters of their normal salaries for six months.

Rishi Sunak said it was “impossible” for him to predict the labour market, but added that the government needed “evolve our support” for jobs.

Responding to a question from BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg he said that he could not say which jobs would remain viable because of the coronavirus pandemic.
