Matthew Fell, CBI Chief Policy Director, said:
“Businesses will welcome the Chancellor’s Plan for Jobs pivoting from furlough to economic recovery. With record vacancies and widespread labour shortages, this package’s success will be measured by its ability to get people back into work.

“Businesses are committed to playing their full part in training and re-skilling the workforce of tomorrow as we move towards a new economy.”
