UK correspondent Matt Dathan joins Kathryn to talk about the bombshell moves by the Government to revive a struggling hospitality sector: half-priced meals for diners, a VAT drop for the next 6 months and a £1000 bonus for every worker brought back from furlough. Homeowners will also get a reprieve from stamp duty if they buy a new house before March. But plans to end free parking for NHS staff has come in for severe criticism.
