SCC respond to extension of lockdown measures to the end of February

Following the announcement of the extension of current lockdown measures in Scotland to at least the end of February, Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“It will come as little surprise to Scottish businesses that restrictions will be in place for at least the rest of the month. Many will be disappointed that non-essential shops will remain closed, not least because of the immense investment the sector has made so they are safe for employees and customers.

“We continue to urge the Scottish Government, local authorities and agencies to speed up the release of vital business support funds. This is essential to provide cashflow support to businesses that have been forced to close. Ultimately, the best route to support the economy is to re-open. That’s why we urgently need an economic roadmap to recovery, that outlines clear conditions and timelines for reopening sectors of the economy if we are to protect businesses and jobs.”
