I thank the cabinet secretary for listening to the sectors that we have all worked so hard to advocate for. The Government has enabled 100 per cent rates relief for the especially affected sectors of retail, hospitality and leisure. However, other businesses with premises are struggling, but are not eligible. I appreciate and listened to what the cabinet secretary said in response to Mark McDonald, but will she consider expanding rates relief?
