The Campaign for Pubs welcomes the decision not to extend Covid passports to pubs in Scotland

The Campaign for Pubs has welcomed the decision today by the Scottish Government not to extend the Covid passports scheme to pubs and any other hospitality.

The Campaign wrote to Nicola Sturgeon last week urging the first Minister not to extend the scheme to pubs.

Welcoming the news Morag Douglas, Campaign for Pubs Spokesperson for Scotland said:

“I am relieved that we are not going to be put under more pressure when we are still struggling to recover from the devastating effects of previous restrictions.

“This was the right decision by the Scottish Government. Scotland’s pubs now need to have a good December, Christmas and Hogmanay as well as ongoing support from Government and from customers.

“We just can’t afford any more restrictions to trade and hope that pubs can now get back on their feet.”
