HC Deb 29 July 1975 vol 896 c442W
40. Mr. Henderson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the current unemployment situation in Scotland.

Mr. John Fraser

The current unemployment rate for Scotland is 6 per cent. Although this figure marks considerable variations in different parts of the country, with some areas having unemployment rates below the average for Great Britain, the overall unemployment situation in Scotland is extremely serious.
