Financial Implications of the Bill

545 Definitive financial implications of the measures put forward in the Coronavirus Bill are, by their very nature, dependent on the severity of the pandemic as well as the timing and geography of its developments.

546 As such, it is not possible to provide exact estimates of expenditure at this stage. However, Government is committed to ensuring that the provisions in this Bill are sufficiently funded to ensure our public services, people and business are equipped to manage the effects of the pandemic.
