FSB applauds encouraging Scottish jobs figures PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 19 September 2016
Official statistics published today show that unemployment in Scotland fell by more than one per cent over the last three months. The Scottish unemployment rate now stands at 4.7 per cent. 

Andy Willox, the FSB’s Scottish policy convenor, said: “Since June’s referendum vote, the vast majority of Scottish firms have been getting on with business.

“While these figures are encouraging, smaller businesses and the self-employed still need support from governments in Edinburgh and London.

“The upcoming Autumn Statement will be a great opportunity for the new Chancellor to show that he backs the UK’s army of smaller firms. Further, the Scottish Government’s current enterprise and skills review must make agencies put the needs of small and growing businesses at their core.”
