    Abstract

    The study upon which this article is based was concerned with the uptake and use of telecommunication services in the Scottish economy. It was also concerned with the formulation and implementation of public policy designed to encourage the uptake of telecommunication services. Its specific objectives were : (a) To uncover telecommunications issues as perceived at the level of individual businesses in Scotland. This part of the work was undertaken through a survey of Scottish Business in six LEC areas and in three sectors - Software, Mechanical Engineering and Textiles. (b) To uncover telecommunications issues as perceived in interviews with officials in selected organisations which have key representative, advisory and policy influencing roles within the Scottish economy. This part of the work was conducted through interviews.
