In full: Boris Johnson faces Keir Starmer at PMQs

Boris Johnson faces Keir Starmer at PMQs as the government considers alternative forms of financial support that could replace the furlough scheme.

Ministers are seeking ways to stave off the economic impact of the latest restrictions.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab this morning said the government wasn’t “minded to wholesale extend the furlough scheme”, but suggested there might be some wiggle room on support for particular sectors.

Hospitality and entertainment are particularly at risk under the new rules, with many culture and sports organisations having been unable to open at all this year.
