This week North West council leaders and MPs wrote to the Chancellor asking him to set out plans for what comes next once this lockdown is over. We have been through so much change and uncertainty we deserve to know what lies ahead so we can plan.

Today, Sunak announced that the furlough scheme will continue at 80% until March. We succeeded in pushing him to give workers what they deserve, not the 13% less that he thought the North was worth.

This is what we can achieve when we work together and hold the government to account.
