HC Deb 09 December 1987 vol 124 c191W
20. Sir Hector Monro

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the major new industrial and tourist developments announced for Scotland in the current year; and if he will estimate the number of new jobs created.

Mr. Rifkind

So far in 1987 total unemployment in Scotland has fallen by 55,000. This clearly shows the favourable effects of our policies in Scotland's economy. I am arranging for a table of the most important industrial and tourist developments to be placed in the Library.
