Anne McTaggart MSP

Growth of the Hospitality Industry in Glasgow

Motion S4M-14337: Anne McTaggart, Glasgow, Scottish Labour, Date Lodged: 22/09/2015

That the Parliament congratulates the city of Glasgow on becoming what it understands is the fastest-growing city in Scotland for new bar and restaurant openings in the last 12 months, as well as the fifth quickest riser in the British hospitality industry; considers that the rise in the number of eating and drinking outlets in Glasgow comes as the city is increasingly been favoured by national operators owing to the vibrancy of the eating and drinking scene as well as its status as a destination for business conferences and tourists; believes that demand for restaurants and hotels has been boosted by the emergence of major music and events venues such as the SSE Hydro, which has given a massive fillip to the sector in the Finnieston area, and considers that this recognition will promote and enhance the hospitality industry in Glasgow, boost the local economy and do so for many years to come.
