Scotland launches plan to attract foreign workers

Scotland
is launching a drive to attract more foreign workers in an attempt to slow down
the country’s slipping population and prosperity.

Jack
McConnell, the Scottish first minister, is hoping to attract more immigrant
workers to prevent a stretched workforce and other long-term economic problems.

The
campaign hopes to persuade people applying for permission to work in the UK to
go to Scotland, rather than other areas in Britain.

Foreign
students that gain qualifications at Scottish universities will also be
encouraged to remain in Scotland to work.
