Commenting on the figures, Ms. Glen said,

" These figures show the effect of the 'Salmond Slump' with Scotland lagging behind the UK in economic recovery.
 
"The millions of pounds cut by the Scottish Government from the affordable housing budget in Dundee has been bleak news for the construction industry in the city.
 
"The Scottish Government should be backing Labourís plea for an immediate £5 million in support for the games industry that has such a high profile and standing in Dundee."
