Highlands and Islands Scottish Conservative MSP Donald Cameron has welcomed today’s announcement by Chancellor Rishi Sunak of a further £4.6bn business support package.
Mr Cameron said: “This is a very welcome initiative and builds on the Chancellor’s earlier decision to extend the furlough scheme until April."
“I am particularly pleased that businesses in the hospitality, leisure and retail sectors stand to receive a one-off grant worth up to £9,000, given their importance to the local economy."
“This is all about using the United Kingdom’s financial resources to protect jobs and livelihoods, and help those businesses which have been struggling to survive the pandemic.”
