Having listened to the Secretary of State's plea in mitigation of the Scottish unemployment situation in reply to Question No. 4 and having impartially considered the matter, I should like to ask whether the Minister realises that the Scottish people will find the Government guilty, since any attempt to say when in office "I am not responsible, but somebody else is" will not wash.

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the fire of nationalism is what the people of Scotland will jump into out of the frying pan of high taxation, low employment and bureaucracy, which are the inevitable consequences of this frightful Government?
