S5W-05635: Rachael Hamilton (South Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 15 December 2016

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of its report, Research on the Pub Sector in Scotland - Phase 1 Scoping Study, when it will engage in discussions between the relevant trade bodies and other interested parties to help reverse the reported decline in the public sector.

Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 16 January 2017

I intend to meet with a wide range of relevant stakeholder interests in the early part of 2017 to discuss the research findings and to listen to those within the Pub industry’s views of their aspirations for the future and the role that Scottish Government can play to help create a more successful sector moving forward.
