Continue furlough scheme One thing is clear, as Government incompetence leads us towards a resurgence of Coronavirus. If this tragic situation is to last at least another six months as Boris Johnson said today, then the furlough job retention scheme must be extended by at least another 6 months. It's not fair to expect families to pay the price of the Government's failure. People's incomes must be protected. Cllr Matt Severn South Lakeland District Council
