HC Deb 09 February 2004 vol 417 cc1319-20W
13. Mr. Weir

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent representations he has received on the projected decline of Scotland's population. [152899]

Mrs. McGuire

My right hon. Friend has received no representations on this issue. Matters related to population projections for Scotland are for the Scottish Executive.

Population projections for Scotland are made by the General Register Office for Scotland, an associated department of the Scottish Executive. 2002-based population projections for Scottish areas are available on its website at www.gro-scotland.gov.uk
