The Prime Minister and the SNP’s leader in Westminster clashed over the UK Government’s support measures for the Christmas period. Mr Johnson told Parliament during Prime Minister’s Questions that Government has not abandoned anyone during the pandemic. 

Mr Johnson said: “We have abandoned nobody, in addition to the support I have already mentioned we have announced nearly £400 million to support vulnerable children and their families through the winter.

“We have increased universal credit as I just mentioned, we have increased local housing allowance, provided billions more to local authorities to help those who are hard to reach.

“I may say that the best way to help the self-employed, the economy and this whole country is to get us moving again with the package of measures that the house voted for last night.”
