Scottish councils spent more than£90m on direct economic development last year, according to a survey for the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities.

That is equivalent to an average spend of£18.12 per head across the country's 32 councils.

COSLA president Norman Murray said: 'We have known for some time that all councils have had a strong commitment to local economic development.'

A 1998 Audit Commission review found that spending per head was£4.21 south of the

border.
