To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he last met the Confederation of British Industry in Scotland; and whether economic growth in Scotland was discussed.

My right hon. and learned Friend and I are in frequent touch with the Confederation of British Industry in Scotland on a range of matters concerning, the Scottish economy. I am sure the CBI shares our satisfaction that economic growth in Scotland in 1988 was at its highest level for 15 years, and is expected to outpace growth in the United Kingdom economy in 1989 and 1990.
