Responding to Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement on some Scottish council areas moving to Level 4 Covid restrictions, which will lead to the closure of betting shops, a spokesperson for the Betting and Gaming Council said:

“The BGC fully supports the Scottish Government’s efforts to slow the spread of Covid-19.

“Nevertheless, it is extremely disappointing for staff and customers that betting shops in these council areas will now unfortunately have to close, not least because of the excellent anti-Covid measures which have enabled them to operate safely since they re-opened in the summer.

“We hope that the shops will be able to re-open as soon as possible so they can go back to contributing to the economy.”
