§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the total number of convictions for murder, culpable homicide and attempted murder in 1977; and what were the comparable figures in each of the previous 20 years.
§ Mr. Millan
The average level of unemployment in Scotland between May 1977 and April 1978 was 188,000. Estimates on a basis broadly comparable to current definitions indicate that in 1938–39 unemployment was significantly higher.
