The leader of Leeds City Council has commented on the latest government announcement of a package to support and enforce self-isolation.
Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said:
“This is an important step forward to help people who are struggling financially to self-isolate. We have been pressing for such support for several months and it will make a difference to help people play their part in containing the virus. Local government’s central role in administering these funds makes it even more important that the government stabilises the sector’s finances soon.”
