£110m of financial support expected to be announced today

The Welsh Government will today announce a further £110m of financial support for businesses affected by the latest restrictions, which will start coming into force from the end of trading on Christmas Eve.

The new support package is expected to help tens of thousands of firms across Wales.

Hospitality, non-essential retail, tourism, leisure and supply chain businesses will be eligible for financial assistance.

The funding is in addition to the £340m support for businesses which the Welsh Government announced at the end of November.

Minister for Mental Health, Wellbeing and Welsh Language, Eluned Morgan will reveal further information about the funding package at the Welsh Government’s press conference today.

Further details are expected to be announced at the 12.30pm conference today.
