FSB: Weak growth stats show challenge PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 13 October 2016
The Scottish economy grew by 0.4% in the second quarter of this year, according to new statistics published today. The UK economy grew by 0.7% over the same period. 

Colin Borland, the FSB’s head of external affairs in Scotland, said: “These pre-referendum statistics might feel like a history lesson, but they teach us that Scottish growth was weak even before June’s historic vote.

“Scotland needs to strive for growth levels at least as good as the UK average. We look forward to the SNP talking business when they meet in Glasgow this week.

“In addition, the UK government needs to put the welfare of the economy at the top of its priority list as it formulates its approach to leaving the EU. The litmus test for every Brexit policy must be the impact on our high streets, small businesses and local communities.”
