SBPA Welcome Scottish Government Grant Extension for Multiple Operators

Commenting on the Scottish Government’s extension of the grant scheme to multiple premises, the Scottish Beer and Pub Association’s CEO Emma McClarkin said:

“This is a hugely welcome announcement from the Cabinet Secretary and one that the SBPA has been pushing the government repeatedly on over the last few weeks. This gives Pubs and other hospitality businesses the extra cashflow needed to survive at this time and will also allow more businesses to reopen once the pandemic is over. There remain areas where further support is still needed; pubs with rateable values of over £51,000 will still receive no grant support and is something we’re pushing both UK and Scottish Government’s for more action, but today’s a day many businesses will be saying ‘Cheers’ to Kate Forbes and the Scottish Government.”
