From Leon Thompson, executive director at UK Hospitality Scotland above, today:
He suggested lowering the visa threshold, along with some “creative thinking” around areas like the youth mobility scheme, which could be extended to more countries, perhaps during peak season.
Thompson argued that there was no “quick fix” to the issue and that the government would have to use all the available options at hand to sort it.https://www.insider.co.uk/news/scottish-hospitality-leaders-call-new-26117249
There is not a chance in hell that Tory MPs would allow any tinkering with the immigration system to let more in. Most of them are still pressing for stricter controls, sensing the frothing rage of their constituents.
It’s simple, Leon – support Scottish independence with a view to a tourism and hospitality sector backed all the way by the SNP Government. You’ll need to start paying better wages too of course.
