Commenting on the extension of the CLBILS scheme, including extending the lending limit to £200m, Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce said:
“This is welcome news. The Treasury has continued to listen to the concerns of business and is making sensible changes to business support schemes.
“These vital changes will make a real difference to companies, in particular larger firms. Access to finance is a priority for businesses of all sizes and the changes to this scheme, coupled with the other lending support schemes available will make sure that companies get the help they need to see them through this economic crisis.”
