Location of civil service jobs in Scotland in relation to the local economic impact of the Scottish Parliament

  The new Scottish Parliament will have potentially significant impacts upon economic, social and political development across Scotland. These issues and others such as the
relationship with the UK government and inter-government transfers are discussed in other papers and elsewhere (Newlands and McCarthy, 1998; Midwinter and McVicar,
1996). This paper concerns the impacts upon the local economy of locating a new Parliament in Edinburgh. It also considers ways in which some of these benefits
might be spread to other local economies in Scotland
