Portfolio Questions: Tourism

I spoke briefly in the chamber about Rachel Hamilton playing politics with business rates that the FSB judged to be “sensible”.


Does the cabinet secretary agree that it is a bit rich for Rachael Hamilton to come to the chamber and play politics over business rates when organisations including the Federation of Small Businesses called the measures that were announced in February “sensible”—which should provide some comfort for Scotland’s vital tourism and hospitality industries—especially given that her own business will save more than £5,000 this year? Is it not about time that Rachael Hamilton stopped asking self-serving questions and started standing up for her constituents?
