SWA welcomes new COVID-19 support package

A spokesperson for the Scotch Whisky Association said: "The Chancellor’s announcement of further support for hospitality and other businesses forced to close by renewed restrictions is very welcome.

“Due to the new restrictions, some hospitality businesses across Scotland will have to close and all will see business fall away. This is after the most challenging six months for hospitality in living memory, and when businesses and jobs are already on the line.

“It is important that the new package of support is accessible quickly and that further consideration is given to businesses in the supply chain that are also under significant pressure.”
