SBPA Respond to First Minister’s Update on Coronavirus Restrictions

Commenting on the First Minister’s announcement, Emma McClarkin CEO of the Scottish Beer & Pub Association said:

“It is positive that we are to progress to Level 0, but the decision to maintain a curfew is hugely disappointing and will exacerbate the financial difficulty many hospitality businesses find themselves in. The sector has suffered the brunt of the restrictions for over a year now and this last-minute change is another blow to the trade. The Scottish Government must look at reversing this decision or allocate further economic support to the businesses impacted.”
