Appeal to save 30,000 jobs

Sturgeon accused of causing travel chaos and confusion

Jacqueline Dobson: ‘inundated with calls from customers’

Nicola Sturgeon has been accused of sowing more “chaos and confusion”by issuing contradictory messages over international travel.

Travel agency boss Jacqueline Dobson said the First Minister’s call not to book overseas holidays during the half-term October break contradicted the Scottish Government and Foreign Office’s own published rules on international travel.

These continue to list a number of popular holiday destinations as being open to holidaymakers and which do not restrict travel in October.

Ms Dobson, President of Barrhead Travel, said: “This conflicting message is another body blow to an industry on which 30,000 Scots depend for their livelihoods.

“There has been a clear demand for last minute holidays in September and October but this statement has caused real confusion and concern amongst Scottish holidaymakers.
