Minister Murphy said, “Every effort is being made to process applications as quickly as possible.

 

 

“So far, £12.9 million of payments have issued to 3,418 businesses under my Department’s Localised Restrictions Support Scheme.

“Businesses which have already applied to this scheme do not need to make a further application.

 

 

“Another payment will automatically be given to eligible businesses to cover their additional period of restrictions.

“Last week the Chancellor provided a £400 million uplift for the Executive’s response to Covid-19.

He added, “I have encouraged Executive colleagues to urgently bring forward proposals to use this money.”
