HMT figures reveal government-backed lending evenly spread across devolved nations and regions of the UK

Lenders understand that times are tough for businesses up and down the country, but the industry has a clear plan to help them get through this crisis. Whether you?re a sole trader in a rural area or a company with hundreds of employees in a major city, the banking and finance industry stands ready to offer the right support to suit your needs.

Figures published by HM Treasury demonstrate that funding provided by the government-backed Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) and Coronavirus Businesses Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) is well distributed throughout the regions and devolved nations of the UK.

Please see the individual press releases below with figures on the number of businesses supported through these schemes in each region and devolved nation. Further analysis of these figures is available in a blog here.
