The Government will be urged to take action to save jobs in the North Sea oil and gas industry during a House of Commons debate on the situation today.
The industry is facing the loss of jobs and future investment as a result of the plummeting price of oil on global markets.
North Sea oil and gas provides about 450,000 jobs, with a high concentration in Aberdeen where it supports more than half of all jobs.
Labour's shadow Scottish secretary Margaret Curran said this could be the biggest threat to Scottish jobs in more than 20 years and urged the Scottish and UK Governments to "take the action that is needed".
