will be considered at a meeting There are elements of

the Scottish Government's plan which ministers

in London agree with. Access to the single market will be

on the table, but membership, the Scottish Government's key

that storm clouds are gathering. Hundreds of jobs are going

in the banking sector with Clydesdale announcing tonight

:03:03.:03:06.

that it's shutting It comes on a day of mixed economic

:03:07.:03:07.

news for Scotland with high street sales up but unemployment

:03:08.:03:14.

rising last autumn. Our Business and Economy Editor,

:03:15.:03:17.

Douglas Fraser has the details. The coastal bank has identified 40

:03:18.:03:31.

brands as it intends to close in Scotland and roughly the same size

:03:32.:03:35.

of cuts with Yorkshire bank in England. A great savings bank. Today

:03:36.:03:40.

it is closing its stores at his remaining three branches with 70

:03:41.:03:45.

jobs being lost. Deposits for 40,000 savers as safe and loans are being

:03:46.:03:49.

transferred to TSB. It is waning of the business after 182 years and is

:03:50.:03:53.

Britain's last independent savings bank. And makes my blood boil that

:03:54.:04:01.

these are fat cats in London who brought the financial crash upon us

:04:02.:04:04.

are still walking away with big bonuses and the people who wrote the

:04:05.:04:07.

entry savings bank on a voluntary basis and no having to face this

:04:08.:04:12.

closure because of the regulations resulting from the greed of the fat

:04:13.:04:20.

cats and London. What's of numbers today. Retailers have had a Merry

:04:21.:04:23.

cats and London. What's of numbers Christmas than for several years,

:04:24.:04:27.

possibly because shoppers and businesses expect inflation so get

:04:28.:04:33.

practices and error. Pay rose by an average of 2.8% but what about jobs?

:04:34.:04:46.

That is an unemployed and rate of 5.1% below the UK rate is at its

:04:47.:04:53.

lowest for more than one decade. The number of people and work in

:04:54.:04:58.

Scotland has fallen by 40,000 bail is groovy little across the rest of

:04:59.:05:02.

the UK. For those getting jobs are creating their own companies, it

:05:03.:05:06.

pays to be adaptable as John McManus has been finding out.

:05:07.:05:09.

It might still be an uncertain time for Scotland's economy,

:05:10.:05:12.

but despite challenges facing the job markets, necessity

:05:13.:05:14.

This storage company in Paisley is typical

:05:15.:05:20.

Most of its customers are small businesses,

:05:21.:05:26.

some of them newly launched, who need to store materials

:05:27.:05:28.

It is doing so well, above these storage units it has

:05:29.:05:36.

launched a suite of offices for hire on a monthly bases aimed

:05:37.:05:39.

at companies unsure what the future holds long-term.

:05:40.:05:44.

We try to take away uncertainty and hope the business comes

:05:45.:05:48.

in and takes the space for a month, grow the business, bring it

:05:49.:05:51.

back down in size again, to try to make it work for them.

:05:52.:05:56.

This small company is typical of those who moved in.

:05:57.:06:00.

The best option for them as they map out their future.

:06:01.:06:04.

It makes it better for me in the long run that I do not pay

:06:05.:06:08.

out a lot of money on a big fancy building, and rent a big space that

:06:09.:06:13.

The number of storage companies has jumped in Scotland,

:06:14.:06:19.

providing a secure route through the economic uncertainty.

:06:20.:06:28.

Yet more numbers to date from the Scottish Government showing sluggish

:06:29.:06:35.

growth in output across the economy. It grew only 0.2 of 8% between July

:06:36.:06:40.

and September and December before that. It has been growing at three

:06:41.:06:45.

times the pace in the UK economy. The slump of the oil and gas sector

:06:46.:06:51.

explains it as well as constitutional uncertainty about

:06:52.:06:52.

Brexit and Scotland's future. A government scheme to compensate

:06:53.:06:54.

rail passengers with free tickets following criticism of rail services

:06:55.:06:56.

may not go ahead unless Holyrood's rural economy committee

:06:57.:06:59.

heard today that Abellio ScotRail and Transport Scotland

:07:00.:07:03.

are still discussing how to implement the free week

:07:04.:07:06.

for season ticket holders, which was announced in the Scottish

:07:07.:07:08.

Government's draft budget. The Scottish Government's been

:07:09.:07:15.

defeated over its plans to abolish the board of Highlands and Islands

:07:16.:07:17.

Enterprise. MSPs backed calls to reverse

:07:18.:07:20.

the decision to create a Scotland wide board for enterprise and skills

:07:21.:07:22.

by 64 votes to 63. Ministers are now expected

:07:23.:07:28.

to rethink their plans. Police have confirmed that a bullet

:07:29.:07:33.

has been recovered from a tree beside the Glasgow school

:07:34.:07:36.

where a man was shot on Monday. 35 year old Ross Monaghan

:07:37.:07:41.

was attacked after dropping his child off at St George's Primary in

:07:42.:07:44.

Penilee. Four years ago he was cleared

:07:45.:07:46.

of a gangland murder. The Health Secretary has defended

:07:47.:07:51.

the decision to delay the implementation of a ?30 million

:07:52.:07:54.

pound trauma network for Scotland. The centres should have been

:07:55.:07:59.

in operation by 2016 Shona Robison was asked

:08:00.:08:01.

to apologise for the delay, with Labour saying up to 18,000

:08:02.:08:07.

people would be failed. Let's get the weather forecast

:08:08.:08:11.

now with Christopher. Largely dry and cloudy across the

:08:12.:08:24.

country but the sunnier skies across the north-east meaning clear skies

:08:25.:08:26.

tonight and Chile but mailed foremost. Across the UK village I am

:08:27.:08:33.

cloudy but if you spot of light rain and the Fire Service, called the

:08:34.:08:37.

coming off the continent will mean it is a rather frosty with the

:08:38.:08:41.

conditions in the north-east leading to frost. Temperatures are very

:08:42.:08:44.

similar to how we stuck to the data model. Six to 8 degrees. Perhaps the

:08:45.:08:51.

odd patch of frost around in the north-west and patchy outbreaks of

:08:52.:08:54.

in the stretching towards Orkney and Shetland welly bit of a breeze here

:08:55.:08:59.

but elsewhere the winds are generally late. Through tomorrow

:09:00.:09:02.

little in the way of change, mostly dry and cloudy but once again in the

:09:03.:09:08.

north-east seen the best of any sunshine and those in the sky it's

:09:09.:09:16.

harder to come by tomorrow. Villa cloudy across to most of the

:09:17.:09:19.

Midlands and Wales and Northern Ireland with southern England with

:09:20.:09:24.

some sunshine but cooler. Nick today mostly mild but also mostly cloudy.

:09:25.:09:31.

The best of any sunshine across the north-east with temperatures around

:09:32.:09:38.

a domain Celsius. Still rain across the far north and the Northern Isles

:09:39.:09:44.

and, Friday the greater skies in the north-east shift westwards as a

:09:45.:09:47.

drier air arrives and something bright of edging and towards

:09:48.:09:52.

Strathclyde at times too. To the weekend, high pressure still with us

:09:53.:09:56.

so largely dry with some brightness but not wall-to-wall sunshine and

:09:57.:10:00.

average temperatures and sums spots of rain and the north-west.

:10:01.:10:03.

But from everyone on the late team, goodnight.
