Glasgow remaining in Level 3 for week is bitter blow, says UKH Scotland

Executive Director at UKHospitality Scotland has responded to the First Minister’s statement that Glasgow will remain in Level 3 for at least another week.

Leon Thompson said, “Today’s news is a bitter blow for hospitality businesses. UKHospitality Scotland members in Glasgow are experiencing devasting financial burdens with owners, operators and workers struggling with the pressure of this ongoing situation.

'Waiting another week in the hope of good news will sap morale further, heaping more misery on businesses that have not been able to trade fully since last October.'

Thompson concluded, 'It is essential that the Scottish Government fully recognises the devastation being caused to Glasgow’s most important business sector and provides the necessary financial support to hospitality businesses, to avoid closures and job losses.”
