Scottish Chambers of Commerce described today’s news as “another blow” to our economic recovery. Thousands of businesses are still waiting on support from July and, now that we have returned to a full lockdown, more support requests are inevitable. When will the outstanding claims from July be processed? Will the eight new schemes that were announced on 9 December all launch as planned this month, and when will businesses receive their first payments? Finally, will the First Minister outline when businesses that must close as a result of today’s announcement will receive support?
