Spending Review 2020 (SR20) prioritises funding to support the government’s response to Covid-19 and invest in the UK’s recovery across the UK.

SR20 confirms a further £38bn to tackle Covid-10 this year and provides a further £55bn for departments to respond to Covid-19 next year

SR20 also announces the next phase of our infrastructure revolution to kickstart the UK’s economic recovery with £100bn of capital investment next year.

This builds on the unprecedented level of support this government has provided to support the economy’s recovery during the Covid-19 outbreak.
