UK coronavirus live: 21% of people taking lockdown rules 'less strictly' after Cummings row, poll suggests

While the government’s gradual approach to winding down the job retention scheme is welcome, there are now just days left for employers to protect their workers who need to shield.

We are already seeing too many heartbreaking cases where, having been denied furlough, shielded workers face the impossible choice of safeguarding their health or ensuring they have enough to live on.

The government should waive the 10 June deadline for the shielded group, and those they live with. Employers should also be exempt from contributing to the cost of the scheme for the shielded group.
