Lowest rate on record of joblessness across Scotland

Benefit claimants in Glasgow may have to travel further for employment services under UK government plans to close half the city's 16 job centres.
The Scottish National Party described the proposal as "morally outrageous".
It said those from the poorest areas would face higher travel and phone costs, making it harder to seek work.
The Department for Work and Pensions said the closures would save public money and reflected an increase in use of online and telephone services.
Under the plans, there would be no job losses among Jobcentre Plus staff, while claimants would not have to travel further than four miles or 40 minutes.
Denise Horsfall, DWP work services director for Scotland, said it was now easier for claimants to access Jobcentre services "whether that be in person, online or over phone".
"By bringing together a number of neighbouring jobcentres we're continuing to modernise our operations while ensuring that our premises provide best value to the taxpayer," she said.
The DWP said there would be a pub
