SCC comment on lifeline support for business

Commenting on the cabinet secretary for the economy Fiona Hyslop’s statement to the Scottish Parliament today (21st April) where Ms Hyslop announced further support measures for Scottish businesses, Dr Liz Cameron OBE, chief executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“The extra support being made available to fill the gaps where it has so far been unable to reach businesses and employees is welcome, but we must insist that the mechanism of how to get this help is made clear and the cash is delivered as quickly as possible. The need for support is urgent and companies have already fallen by the wayside.

“Many businesses will want to see more detail on how the ‘response, reset, restart and recovery’ plan will clear the current perfect storm of uncertainty. The Chamber Network is ready to play our part in a constructive way with the Scottish Government to help forge the way ahead. Businesses are anxious to work towards how we can rebuild our businesses and retain jobs.”
