Labour productivity in Scotland UP AGAIN!

In Insider yesterday: Bottom of Form

Labour productivity in Scotland increased by 1.1% between January and March compared to the same period last year, official figures show. According to analysis published by Scotland’s chief statistician Roger Halliday, growth in output per hour worked also grew by 0.4% in quarter one, up on the 0.2% growth recorded in the previous quarter. Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said: “These latest figures are further evidence of Scotland’s strong economy as output per hour worked has increased compared to the same quarter last year.”

As always, TuS can reveal that this good news is nothing new. See these earlier reports:

    In a way I am glad I do not like in Scotland just now.

    The whole apparatus of avalanche bad propaganda would do ma but in.

    Wonder if we will soon be seeing an increase in tranquillisers and other happy pills prescribed by Scottish GPs to folk who get their news from the BBC and print churnalism.
