SWA response to FM speech on independence referendum
13 Mar 2017
"Following the First Minister's
announcement, the SWA will of course work closely with our members
over the coming months to understand fully industry views on a
future Scottish independence referendum.
"Scotch Whisky must be made in
Scotland. The industry is rooted in Scotland and will continue to
invest in its people, operations and world-famous
brands. However, it's important that government works
hard to ensure that the Scottish business environment is
competitive, regardless of the constitutional debate. We are
also focused on making sure the industry's Brexit priorities are
understood and delivered."
