2.The programme is being launched on Thursday 15th October. This is to respond to an increasing crisis in these sectors and further delays will impact on the survival of local businesses and their ability to retain staff

Alternative options considered:

The programme has been developed in a short space of time to encourage businesses in these sectors to retain staff and hold back from issuing redundancy notices.
