SCC welcome additional £40 million increase for Business Support Fund

Welcoming the Scottish Government’s announcement that it is adding an additional £40 million into the Business Support Fund to support key sectors, Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce said:

“Businesses in Scotland have been severely impacted by the lockdown, particularly in rural areas with the risk of a real collapse in businesses and jobs which hold together the fabric of so many communities. It is welcome that the Scottish Government has responded to these urgent pleas. It is this sort of flexibility that will ensure as many jobs are saved as is possible.’’
