Responding to the support package for businesses announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak on Tuesday 17 March, ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said:

“The measures announced by the Chancellor today will provide welcome reassurance and support for companies across our industries and the wider economy.

“Government assistance in addressing problems from temporary disruption to orders, supply chains or access to finance will help businesses to manage the economic challenges and minimise any long-term impact.

“We will make sure the Government is fully and quickly informed of issues raised in our sectors in the coming weeks and months, and will work closely with them to help develop and deliver the support required.”
