A stolen Ministry of Defence computer had the personal details of almost
60,000 Scots stored on it.
The revelation came in a written parliamentary answer to SNP defence
spokesman Angus Robertson MP.
The laptop, which was taken from a Royal Navy officer in Birmingham on 9
January, contained information about 600,000 people.
The MoD has set up a freephone help number on 0800 085 3600 for anyone who
thinks they may have been affected.
The breakdown given to Mr Robertson disclosed that the details of 59,553
people in Scotland were lost as a result of the theft.
In Wales, the details of 37,546 people were lost, while in Northern
Ireland 14,223 people were affected.
The details of 459,778 people from England and 34,667 people from
elsewhere were also on the laptop.
