Abstract

In the first quarter of 1986 the index of industrial production and construction for Scotland recorded a fall of 4% compared with the last quarter of 1985. Despite this the year-on-year index grew by 2.5 although much of this recovery was associated with the ending of the miners' strike which had depressed both Scottish and UK output growth.
