  • Rishi Sunak is being urged to extend his Eat Out to Help Out scheme by targeting city centres worst-hit by the shift to home working during the coronavirus pandemic as the initiative comes to an end on Monday.

    Allies of the Chancellor believe he should continue the popular scheme in areas such as the City of London, which remain largely deserted.

    Senior sources said the issue is a live discussion within the Treasury, though no decision will be made until Mr Sunak returns from holiday this week.
