FSB on weak Scottish jobs figures

Official figures show that Scottish unemployment grew between December and February. Further, Scottish employment also fell over the same period. 

Andy Willox, the Federation of Small Businesses’ (FSB) Scottish policy convenor, said: “Today’s weak figures will make uncomfortable reading for those charged with looking after Scotland’s job markets.  

“Scotland’s smaller businesses have a great record of creating jobs and opportunities in communities across the country. Governments in Edinburgh and London can do more to charge these firms with confidence about the future. For starters, we could look again at how the state buys goods and services.”
