    Abstract

    The latest output data from the Scottish Office for the third quarter 1994, indicate that both production and manufacturing are growing more quickly in Scotland than in the UK, while in construction, the industry generally continues to contract but at a faster rate in Scotland. In comparison with the second quarter 1994, the output of the production industries in Scotland rose by 2.2% compared with 1.3% in the UK; manufacturing output also rose by 2.2% against 1.2% in the UK, while construction registered a 4.4% fall in output here, in contrast to a 1.3% fall in the UK as a whole.
