Breaking News ! The Eat Out to Help Out scheme could make a return to Scottish restaurants. Around 100 million meals were redeemed across the UK through the August initiative - which was introduced by the UK Government to help restart the hospitality sector amid the coronavirus pandemic. Diners were able to get a 50 per cent discount of up to £10 off their meals and soft drinks under the popular scheme on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays last month. Experts are now fearing the worst for the UK’s economy after the Government’s furlough scheme comes to an end in October.

An official for the Treasury has claimed a second course of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme is “under review”, as the Westminster government continues to mull over its next economic recovery plan.

. "So could I ask (Sunak) if he would consider a similar sort of scheme to be run at some point during the winter to help as many businesses as possible survive the winter and be here for next summer?” There are now question marks over the August scheme after a report suggested a correlation between the initiative and the rise in coronavirus cases (Image: PA) Responding to the question, Financial Secretary to the Treasury Jesse Norman said: “I would say that there is this wider package… of course the Treasury keeps all these measures under review… but it is a pretty formidable combination of VAT reduction, business rates relief and of course billions in tax deferrals and loans." But there will be question marks raised over any return to the scheme, after new figures suggested there was a correlation between Eat Out to Help Out and the sudden rise in new coronavirus cases in the UK. The scheme prompted a 216 per cent surge in restaurant booking when it was active last month, reports the Mirror. Both the UK and Scottish Governments adopted stricter measures on gatherings after a spike in the number of new infections as the initiative came to an end.
