Government to unveil new bill to help businesses adjust to social distancing measures

first_imgHowever, a group of more than 50 Tory MPs are reported to have voiced their opposition to the extension, claiming it would result in larger retailers drowning out smaller shops, which are already permitted to trade all day on Sundays under the 1994 act. It comes amid claims the chancellor is set to cut the VAT rate in an attempt to kickstart the economy by encouraging the public to hit the high streets.

Changes to the Sunday Trading Act 1994 would allow larger shops and supermarkets to open for more than six hours on Sundays to allow people to shop for longer and provide a welcome boost to retailers.  Prime Minister Boris Johnson, his chief adviser Dominic Cummings, chancellor Rishi Sunak, and business secretary Alok Sharma, all support the move, the Times reported.center_img “At the heart of it will be legislation to enable businesses to adjust to new ways of working and to help businesses to capitalise on the summer months,” the PM’s spokesman said. whatsapp Share The new coronavirus bill will centre around planning changes and allowing cafes, pubs and restaurants to serve takeaway alcohol as part of an “al fresco revolution”. The Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS) last week said the economic shutdown has slashed nearly two decades of growth and warned that borrowing will skyrocket to levels not seen since the Second World War. Johnson’s official spokesman said: “We have said we will keep measures such as extending Sunday trading hours under review as they can support shops with social distancing and allow shoppers to buy food and other items more conveniently.” (AFP via Getty Images) Also Read: Government to unveil new bill to help businesses adjust to social distancing measures The government is set to bring forward fresh legislation to help businesses adjust to new social distancing requirements, as the UK begins to emerge from months of lockdown.

Moody’s sees increased risks in Quebec budget

first_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Credit rating agency Moody’s Investors Service has its doubts about the government of Quebec’s pledge to eliminate its deficit by 2015-2016. Following the tabling of its new budget on June 4, Moody’s notes that the province’s fiscal health has weakened from earlier projections. It’s now forecasting a $2.35 billion deficit this year, up from the $1.75 billion forecast in November 2013. And, the estimated deficit for 2013-2014 has also been increased from its previous forecast. Yet, despite these deteriorations, the target for a return to balanced budgets remains unchanged, it notes. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Related news Keywords Budgets,  Quebec Alberta hopes higher oil prices will power recoverycenter_img Quebec seniors working later in life, carrying more debt The government aims to get there primarily by curbing spending, and by finding further savings in a review of program spending. The budget also proposes to launch a review of the province’s tax system, and Moody’s notes that it allocates results equal to $650 million from this review in the planned balanced budget. “The goal of achieving a balanced budget for 2015-2016 rests on a substantial shift in spending patterns from recent years and revenue measures from a special review committee that has not yet been formed,” noted Michael Yake, assistant vice president and analyst at Moody’s. “Given the reliance on these factors, as well as the deterioration in fiscal balances for the recent past from previous targets, expectations of a balanced budget in 2015-2016 appear ambitious at this point.” Moody’s also notes that the province announced that infrastructure spending will equal $90.3 billion over the next 10 years. “With higher deficits and significant infrastructure spending, Quebec’s debt burden is expected to increase over the next two years,” it says, adding that, nevertheless, the province remains committed to its plan for a gradual reduction of its debt burden, targeting gross debt to equal 45% of GDP by 2026.

Battle Ground Shred Day 2020

first_imgDonations accepted by Battle Ground Lions Club as people bring boxes full of paperBATTLE GROUND – It was steady from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.A few cars here, then a few more, and a few more. Sometimes, a line would materialize.Some of the folks driving those cars had boxes, a lot of boxes, full of receipts, bills, and other legal documents. Others just had maybe half a bag filled with those papers.Soon, all that paper would be diced and chopped into itty bits of paper. It was Shred Day in Battle Ground, presented by the Battle Ground Lions Club.The event was free Saturday but the Lions Club took donations. And most people were very giving.Usually, Shred Day is in May, soon after Tax Day. This year, of course, Tax Day was delayed. So, too, was Shred Day. The hope is for Shred Day to return in May in 2021.Many people dropped their paper into a receptacle and drove away, knowing that Marty Damewood of Le May Mobile Shredding would do his job, by dumping those papers into the back of the truck, where the shredding happens.Some, though, insisted on parking nearby and watching their papers get put in the shredder. There is even a small monitor that shows the shredding from a small camera inside the back of the truck.Members of the Lions Club said they have been doing this for about eight years, and it has become a popular event. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Battle GroundClark CountyLatestshare 0 Previous : Vancouver Fire Dept battles attic fire in Glenwood Neighborhood Next : Protect yourself, others from heat-related illness during hot weatherAdvertisementThis is placeholder text Battle Ground Shred Day 2020Posted by Paul ValenciaDate: Monday, July 27, 2020in: Peopleshare 0 last_img read more
