Singer Niall Horan has announced a one-off live streamed show, with proceeds going to members of his road crew.

The pop star has been working with some of his team since One Direction’s first tour in 2011 – and he says the pandemic has left many of them stranded.

“My stage manager is working on a building site currently,” he told the BBC. “A couple of lads are working in Tesco and Sainsbury’s.

“If there’s no touring, they don’t have a job. They’ve been left behind.”

The star and his crew were supposed to be on tour for six months this year, visiting Australia, Asia, Europe and America.

But while Horan used lockdown to write new songs and play radio sessions, he realises others don’t have that luxury.

“I’m obviously one of the lucky ones, but not everyone

Virus-blighted British Airways Announces Shock CEO Departure

British Airways, which is slashing thousands of jobs as coronavirus decimates demand for air travel, announced Monday that CEO Alex Cruz is stepping down “with immediate effect” but gave no reason for his unexpected departure.

Parent group IAG added in a statement that the Spanish businessman, who had been BA chief executive for four and half years, will be replaced by its Aer Lingus boss Sean Doyle.

New IAG chief executive Luis Gallego, a fellow Spaniard who took the reins from Willie Walsh just last month, said the company’s management reshuffle was aimed at emerging stronger from the health crisis.

India finance minister announces steps to boost consumer demand

NEW DELHI, Oct 12 (Reuters)India’s finance minister on Monday announced steps to stimulate consumer demand including advance payment of a part of the wages of federal government employees for spending during the festival season, part of efforts to bolster the pandemic-hit economy.

The government will also allow its employees to spend travel allowances that are an income-tax-exempt part of their salaries on goods and services, Nirmala Sitharaman told a news briefing.

“This is expected to create a consumer demand of about 280 billion rupees ($3.83 billion),” she said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, which imposed a tough lockdown to stem the spread of the coronavirus in March, is pushing ahead with a full opening to try to boost the economy ahead of the usually high-spending festival season.

New Delhi [India], October 12 (ANI): Trying to give a boost to the plummeting economy, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday announced two proposals — Leave Travel Concession (LTC) Cash Voucher Scheme and Special Festival Advance Scheme — to stimulate consumer demand.

This comes a few hours ahead of the crucial 43rd Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council meeting to be chaired by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

The Reserve Bank of India has predicted that the whole financial year’s GDP would shrink 9.5 per cent in the current fiscal.

By Aftab Ahmed and Manoj Kumar

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India on Monday announced steps to stimulate consumer demand, including advance payment of a part of the wages of federal government employees during the festival season and more capital spending as it tries to bolster the pandemic-hit economy.

She said the government will also shore up investment by spending extra 250 billion rupees ($3.41 billion)on roads, ports and defence projects, and offering 120 billion rupees in interest-free 50-year loans to state governments for spending on infrastructure before March 31,2021.

“All these measures are likely to create an additional demand of 730 billion rupees ($9.96 billion),” Sitharaman said, adding the proposals would stimulate demand in a “fiscally prudent way.”
