    The former chancellor, Philip Hammond, spoke to Mishal Husain about the prospects for the UK economy, a day before the chancellor’s summer statement. He told Mishal: “I think we're likely to see a recovery where the first part is a very sharp V and then that tails off into a very long, slow recovery of the last part of the lost output, which could take years for us to get back to 2019 levels of output." Mr Sunak is expected to announce that households in England are to be offered grants of up to 5 thousand pounds for energy saving home improvements, such as insulation. The scheme is part of a wider 3-billion pound "green investment", aimed at stimulating the economy after the coronavirus crisis and reducing carbon emissions.

    The Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told Mishal Husain that people arriving in England from more than 50 countries including France, Spain, Germany and Italy will no longer need to quarantine from 10th July. He added that the US is not included as "they have got very high numbers of infections", while Greece does not feature as it has banned flights from the UK until 15th July. Most travellers to the UK currently have to self-isolate for two weeks.

It has become exceptional for this podcast to carry anything but the early business news bulletin. Please revitalise this and return to an hour or so of content reflecting the best of the Today Program. My life and knowledge are far poorer for the downgrading of this pod.
