'Make it in Scotland' shirts made in Morocco
A Scottish employment quango is under fire after getting its staff to wear T-shirts saying 'Make it in Scotland' that were actually made in Morocco.
Staff at Careers Scotland wore the shirts at careers fairs to try to get schoolchildren interested in the struggling manufacturing sector.
Now union leaders have written to Scottish Enterprise - which runs Careers Scotland - demanding an explanation, says the Daily Record
One Careers Scotland insider said: "Thousands of people have been made redundant in the manufacturing sector in recent years.
The whole point of the Make it in Scotland campaign is to try and reverse that trend by getting schoolkids interested in a career in manufacturing.
"But it's double standards when the organisers are actually using goods made overseas to deliver this message."
