Covid-19

Part of the debate – in the Scottish Parliament on 15th December 2020.

Alert me about debates like this

The First Minister:

I will have to come back to Liz Smith to confirm that, because it is a particularly detailed point. If the fund that she talked about does not cover golf tour operators, I undertake to look at whether there is other help that we can make available to them, because they are an important part of our tourism industry.

The impact of the pandemic on hospitality and tourism is severe. That is true across Scotland and other parts of the UK. I recognise that and know just how devastating the current situation is for people who run hospitality or tourism businesses, who have built such businesses or who work in those sectors. I will continue to undertake that we will do everything in our power to provide the help and support that they need.
