UK Hospitality Concern at Scottish Government’s Decision to allow Tourist Tax Introduction

Willie MacLeod, Executive Director, Scotland for UK Hospitality (UKH) said: “We are extremely concerned today that the Scottish Government ignored the advice of the country’s leading tourism experts and announced the introduction of new legislation for a Tourist Tax. It is less than a week since they concluded a national conversation about the tax.  Before the ink was dry and the results properly assessed, the Government has made a far-reaching decision, on this critical industry, on a whim for political convenience.


“We hope they see sense and use this announced second consultation to properly listen to the views of the majority of the tourism industry and dismiss this ill-informed and badly conceived tax.”
