Business and Planning Bill
This bill aims to introduce a range of measures to help businesses adjust to new ways of working as the country recovers from the disruption caused by Covid-19. The measures support the transition from immediate crisis response and lockdown into recovery and getting the economy moving again. The measures also support businesses to implement safer ways of working to manage the ongoing risks from Covid-19, in particular the need for social distancing.
