Councils fail to hand out £1.6bn of COVID grants New figures from the Department for Business show that councils across Britain failed to hand out more than £1.6bn of emergency COVID grants to struggling businesses, causing fury in Whitehall.

Full discretion has made councils afraid of making mistakes and wanting more guidance from government, while government insists all instruction has been given.”
