What will come next?
The Chancellor is understood to be considering replacing the boost with a one-off payment of £1,000.
Mr Sunak has been under increasing pressure from Tory MPs to extend it.
However, the Chancellor is said to have ruled that out, fearing it could become a permanent fixture of the scheme if it’s allowed to continue.
Instead, he’s offering claimants the chance of a one-off cash injection, twice as much as the £500 previously reported.
