If in doubt, apply for support, advises business body

The head of the Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce says that, if in doubt, businesses should apply for the Government's economic assistance package.

Chief executive Peter Townsend says there can't be double-dipping with insurance claims.

But if there are concerns about things such as the amount of time those claims could take to be paid out, people should seek help, he says.
