Call for clarity

Sturgeon restates virus grants apply to ‘properties’

Nicola Sturgeon: stated the grant would apply to each property

Businesses are stepping up pressure on the Scottish government amid renewed confusion over who is eligible for new grant support.

The government has left businesses unclear after initially stating that £25,000 would be available to each property.

But when businesses apply for the grant they are told it applies to one grant per business.

Finance Secretary Kate Forbes, and Fergus Ewing, the Rural Economy Secretary, said in parliament on 18 March that the £25,000 grant would be applicable for each “property” operated by a business.
