Scotland’s Labour and Conservative parties are calling on the Scottish and UK Governments to agree a new funding deal for Glasgow’s culture and leisure services.
Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar raised a motion in Holyrood calling for further support for Glasgow Life, which runs culture and leisure on behalf of Glasgow City Council.
The charitable organisation warned it cannot reopen more than 90 of its 171 venues if it does not receive more than the £100m guaranteed by the council over the next four years.
Glasgow Life lost £38m during the lockdown, leading to plans to cut 500 jobs.
Scottish Conservative Glasgow MSP Annie Wells voiced her support for the motion.
“It should be a source of shame for the SNP Government that so many vital facilities and venues in Glasgow are under threat.”
