#AceDailyNews says that the #COVID19 Travel Changes with Job support extension as Rishi Sunak commits a further 500-million to extend until to fund those eligible on ‘Universal Credit’ with paying £3,000 per apprentice …..
1. Sunak to extend job support schemes
Chancellor Rishi Sunak will use his Conservative Party conference speech to commit £500m to renewing job support schemes introduced as part of the pandemic response. The £2bn Kickstart Scheme – subsidising eligible jobs for young people on universal credit – will be extended to March. Programmes to help long-term unemployed people on universal credit and to pay employers £3,000 per apprentice taken on will also be extended. Labour says it will not compensate for tax rises, a raised cost of living crisis and universal credit cuts.
2. Amber list scrapped as new travel rules take effect
Simplified travel rules announced weeks ago have come into force in the UK, with the traffic-light system replaced by a single red list. It means most fully vaccinated travellers arriving from non-red list countries will no longer have to take a test before setting off for the UK, although those coming from red list destinations must still pay to quarantine in a hotel for 10 days.
3. Jab offers for ages 12 to 15 in Wales by half-term
All 12 to 15-year-olds in Wales will be offered a Covid vaccine by the end of the October half-term, Welsh Health Minister Eluned Morgan says. The rollout is due to gather pace this week with all health boards providing jabs, mostly at mass vaccination centres and others in schools.
4. The bitter battle over mandatory vaccination
While Health Secretary Sajid Javid says he’s not prepared to “pause” the requirement for care staff in England to be fully vaccinated by 11 November, a row is raging in the US over mandatory jabs for certain workers. With a legal battle looming in Florida, we hear from those arguing for both personal freedom and public health.Watch: The showdown over Covid-19 mandates
