Rishi Sunak is set to extend business rates relief and prolong the furlough scheme into the summer, The Telegraph has reported.
In next months budget Mr Sunak is expected to announce that the year-long business rates for retail, hospitality and leisure will continue.
The business rates holiday was set to expire at the end of March but will be continued. Furlough will also be continued in an attempt to prevent a surge in unemployment.
The furlough scheme is expected to be kept in place until the summer before being phased out.
