Over the past weeks Christine has drawn attention to the struggles of the aviation, travel and tourism industries including a in speech outlining the hampering effect of the Government’s muddled travel guidance, calling for them to take the concerns of businesses seriously.
In June Christine met with individuals from Edinburgh West’s travel businesses near Parliament as part of a Travel Day of Action where industry representatives from across the country came to Westminster to protest both the Scottish and UK governments’ continued neglectful treatment of the travel sector.
This follows a speech she made last week about extending support for businesses in keeping with the extension of covid restrictions. Christine has pushed the Government to abandon its piecemeal approach and come up with a long term strategy for businesses and jobs including extending furlough, business rates relief and VAT cuts.
