£21.7 million was been paid to people in Jersey through the island's Co-Funded Payroll between September and December last year.

The Government of Jersey has revealed this helped to support around 5,000 jobs each month.

This is substantially less than the £81 million for the period March to August 2020.

The figures published by the Minister for Treasury and Resources, Deputy Susie Pinel, show that:

More than 1,500 businesses were paid £7.6 million in December; the highest month in the quarter.

To date, £3,321,666.45 has been repaid by 331 companies.
