LONDON - The mayor of the British city of Manchester said he had heard that finance minister Rishi Sunak was about to announce a U-turn on his decision to scale back welfare payments after a coronavirus emergency top-up.

"I'm hearing that they are about to U-turn on universal credit. We're hearing that there's going to be a change particularly for those on universal credit in work," Andy Burnham told BBC radio.

Sunak is due to announce a budget statement at 1130 GMT on Wednesday.
