Mr Blackford said: "What we are talking about is protecting the jobs of people today, it is not a definite and number has asked for that.
"The first steps to any recovery is admitting that there is a problem, even the governor of the Bank of England is telling the Prime Minister to stop and rethink.
2The solution for millions of people right now is an extension of the furlough scheme beyond October.
"The alternative is putting 61,000 jobs in Scotland at risk."
