Furlough numbers continue to fall

The number of people on furlough has continued to fall, the Treasury today said.

Young people are leading the way, latest figures showed.

At the end of July, 1.6 million people were still on furlough, the lowest level since the start of the pandemic and 340,000 fewer than a month earlier.
There had been “a striking fall” in the number of young people on furlough, the Treasury said.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, 11.6 million workers have benefited from the government programme, which is due to be wound up at the end of this month.
