Around 5 million UK jobs still furloughed at end of July

Around 5.0 million British jobs remained on furlough at the end of July, down from a peak of just under 9.0 million but still leaving millions of workers facing uncertainty with the scheme due to be wound up at the end of next month.

Provisional tax data released on Friday showed that employers had registered 4.8 million jobs as furloughed as of July 31, down from a peak of 8.9 million in early May, reports Reuters.

The government said final data could show an upward revision of around 10 per cent, making it likely that 5.3 million jobs were still furloughed at the end of July.
