(Updates timing)

LONDON, March 17 (Reuters) - British finance minister Rishi Sunak will make a statement to parliament on Tuesday, the leader of the House of Commons said on Twitter.

The statement, titled “Economic update”, is expected to take place at around 1900 GMT, the opposition Labour Party said.

Last week, Sunak announced help for businesses threatened with collapse by the spread of coronavirus, and is on Tuesday due to unveil further measures after the government ramped up its response to the outbreak. (Reporting by Kylie MacLellan; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
