Answer

Tourism and hospitality businesses across Scotland are to benefit from a £104.3 million package of support in the New Year. This includes £5.8m for tour operators, including coach tourism operators. We are in the process of working with the Confederation of Passenger Transport and VisitScotland to develop the funding package for the coach tourism sector. More details will be announced shortly.
