Business continuity - pandemic - UK.

Project Birch was a temporary UK government plan announced in May 2020 to bail out strategically important UK companies facing financial difficulty due to COVID-19.

The UK government:

'indicated that it is prepared to assist large companies "in exceptional circumstances" and as a "last resort" where an otherwise viable company has "exhausted all options" and its failure would "disproportionately harm the UK economy".'
DWF Law, Legal Insights, 29 May 2020
