Mandatory. They already have the info, they're basically just telling you that they're releasing it.

Unless it's an April Fool posting, this would be breaching data protection surely. Secondly, what a can of worms they'd be opening. Hospitality would love to see what hotel/holiday accommodation have been picking up during the pandemic

It's not an April fools.

DFE publishes an annual report of how much certain companies received under particular schemes for business development. But this is different. This information should be economically protected.

And the farmers subsidies... are Treasury going to release information on which farms/owners received tax payers dosh??

of course not, 400 farmers was far too complicated to sort the numbers out for the public,  there will have been more than 400 claim covid monies from the government but they can manage to tell the world about that.  we'll call it howards spite.  don't forget though the money is classed as income and is then taxed and NI'd accordingly on your tax return so a third will go back to government coffers for some people.

@FilippoI skim-read some of that drivel. One question - wouldn’t it have been easier just to get your jabs rather than do all that dark-web/fake ID/crypto stuff you were waffling about?

You did check the date, didn’t you?

It's probably pretty unwise to release that stuff.

But...

I'm genuinely interested. Obviously the ones that took the piss the most will be the ones most able to object and get pulled from the list, when it's those ones I'd like to hear about. They made it illegal for me to go to work and offered me £200 a week. They did this to loads of people, and attempted pretty hard not to pay that (or any of the schemes for individuals like the 3k self employed grant) yet many businesses did very well.

Regular readers of private eye will be aware of the staggering abuse of the system in the UK by now, it will have happened here too.

I think it was in the terms of the scheme.  They are trying to stem the flow of fois relating to mhk owned businesses.

I read in to the DFE one that the £3k claimants will be published too as it falls under COVID support schemes?

They weasled out of that for quite a few people by saying things such as "oh you're self employed and have been for ages, so that's great and all. we can see that, but because you had a job for a few months a year and a half ago you don't qualify" or similar completely ridiculous things.

A lot of good, honest hard working people got completely shafted and will be paying for it for the rest of their lives.

The self employed and small businesses in some sectors got completely screwed while others milked the system and had better year than normal without lifting a finger.

If this show up some of the inequalities then it is a good thing.

I have no issue sharing what I got from them.  Sweet fa.  New business with no trading history but still with startup bank loans and finance on a vehicle to pay.

Started trading Jan 21 with a decent order book and cash in the bank.  Went tits up having failed to claw back the losses despite being 40% up on the business plan for the last 6 months of 2021.  Stopped from trading and didn’t even qualify for jobseekers as there are “savings” that pay to keep my mum in a care home.

I would put money on some hospitality businesses doing better in the first quarter of 21 than normal years based solely on government handouts while others were hung out to dry.
