§ 27. Sir Hector Monro
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the prospects for(a) industrial investment and (b) employment levels in Scotland; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Kynoch
The prospects for industrial investment and employment in Scotland remain excellent. Recent business survey evidence in Scotland confirms this. The Government's economic policies are providing the necessary conditions for investment and job creation—low interest rates, low taxation and low inflation within a climate of sound public finances.
