Re: Every adult to be given £500 voucher

The point being made was that £500 in someone’s pocket to be spent in a town or city centre is likely to generate more than £500 for businesses if people are also spending money not covered by the voucher in other businesses while they are shopping. Or with a £500 voucher maybe that £750 TV that so...

Re: Every adult to be given £500 voucher
