The article uses Worker Registration Scheme data to examine differences in the use of migrant labour in Scotland and argues that it has changed in spatially and sectorally uneven ways which reflect two distinct migrant labour functions, as substitutional and as complementary. In the former case the demand for migrant labour is highly sensitive to economic cycles. The article identifies the mechanisms accounting for the geographical distinctiveness of "complementary" migrant labour flows over the business cycle
