    Abstract

    In this Quarterly Economic Commentary this section will concentrate solely on the Scottish Chambers Business Survey (SCBS) due to difficulties in obtaining information from the CBI. The SCBS is now the largest, most comprehensive regular Survey of the Scottish economy. The summarised below results refer to the first quarter of 1991 for six major sectors of the economy ie. manufacturing, construction, retail and wholesale distribution, financial institutions, tourism and leisure and oil. 4000 companies from Aberdeen, Central, Dundee, Edinburgh, Fife and Glasgow Chambers of Commerce are surveyed each quarter.
