Commenting, Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP said:

“This pandemic has put real pressure on businesses in my Perthshire South & Kinross-shire constituency, as it has across Scotland.

“The SNP Government has provided swift and substantial financial help to support firms and ensure that our economy is on the best possible footing when we get through this unprecedented crisis.

This package of support for businesses is welcome, and will help alleviate the hardship some individuals and businesses may be facing. I would continue to encourage any eligible businesses facing economic instability to apply for the support offered by the Scottish Government.”
