Thank you for contacting me regarding the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and individuals shielding due to blood cancer.
I entirely understand your concerns and I have tabled the following Written Parliamentary Question to the Chancellor of the Exchequer:
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will further extend financial support through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to those people with blood cancer who have been shielding but cannot work from home, or have been advised to continue shielding from August.
I shall seek to inform you of the Chancellor’s response once it has been received. In the meantime, you can see my Written Parliamentary Quetions using the search function here.
Thank you once again for taking the time to write to me.
