Motion S5M-00998: Scotland’s Growing Population

11 Aug 2016

That the Parliament notes the publication of Scotland’s Population 2015: Registrar General’s Annual Review of Demographic Trends; welcomes the increase in the population to 5,373,000, which is the highest record level ever; understands that, over the next 25 years, it is projected to increase by 7%; believes that a growing population is healthy for the economy as it means more taxpayers are able to contribute to vital public services, and hopes that people will continue to choose Scotland as their home.
