WELCOME FALL IN SCOTTISH UNEMPLOYMENT

[ 15-12-2010 ]

Commenting on today’s Scottish unemployment figures, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said: 
 
“This news of a fall in Scottish unemployment is a welcome seasonal boost, particularly as it has brought to an end this year’s trend of rising unemployment against a falling UK rate.  However our overall unemployment rate still exceeds the UK average and we still have concerns regarding how the impending VAT increase and public spending cuts might affect the Scottish economy in the New Year. 
 
“Businesses will continue to require Government to provide a competitive environment for them to grow and flourish, creating new and sustainable jobs in Scotland.  Challenging times lie ahead, but with the right support from Government, the private sector can lead the recovery in Scotland.”
