It is essential also that outdoor dining, entertainment and hospitality and travel are robustly addressed by Government and not shied away from, as other economies reopen with aplomb. Each step is welcome, however with large numbers of businesses still unable to open, it has to be acknowledged that there is still a long way to go. Risk must be managed, but people must work.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="color: #0e0e0e; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">Over the coming weeks Government will plan the phasing out of <strong>Covid supports and payments</strong>.
