Scottish Government: Call for Accelerated Business Support, 21 April 2020

UK Government urged to fill gaps in funding schemes.

The Scottish Government has been urged to revisit the effectiveness of their support to businesses, and the key requests are:

  • Accelerating the pace of issuing loans
  • A more flexible Job Retention Scheme
  • An immediate extension to Self-employed scheme to include those ineligible for support

Economy Secretary, Fiona Hyslop said "there is grave concern about the gaps in the provision of the UK Government schemes. More should be done for businesses and the newly self-employed facing immediate hardship and the prospect of collapse in communities across Scotland".

The full report and statement from the Economy Secretary can be found on the Scottish Government news pages, HERE.
