Self Employed Cover
Lots of very understandable concern from folk who are self employed, about the fact that measures announced so far don't meet their needs. We know this, and my colleagues and I are continuing to press on this situation. When there is any update, I will share this.
In addition - please note that the First Minister has, rightly, expressed concern that too many people are continuing to go out to work. She has said that hair salons and building sites should not be opening, and that if the nature of your business makes it difficult for you or your employees to work from home or practice social distancing, you should close.
These are serious and unprecedented times. Let's take all the action we can to keep folk safe.
