Prime Minister David Cameron is North of the border making his business case for Scotland to stay in the UK.
He's described Britain as one of the 'oldest and most successful single markets'.
Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond says that the 'single market' will remain if Scotland became independent and that continuing trade between countries is 'right and proper':
David Cameron will tell business leaders tonight that the United Kingdom supports one million Scottish jobs, as he hopes to make the business case for the country remaining in the Union.

– David Cameron to CBI Scotland
For some industries, the proportion of trade with the rest of the UK is even higher - 90% of Scottish financial services' customers are in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Then there's the world-famous gaming industry, cutting-edge sub-sea technology and life-saving biomedicine - all selling far more outside Scotland than inside.
The Prime Minister will attribute this success to the "skill of people in Scotland ... and the opportunities that come from being part of something bigger".

A new scheme, aimed at improving the job prospects of people in Cumbria, has resulted in 26 people gaining employment in the area.
Half of those that completed the programme, launched by Sellafield Ltd, are said to be starting new jobs with a range of companies both inside and outside of the nuclear industry.
37-year-old Paul Tomlinson lost his job of 10 years, as a manager of Whitehaven Civic Hall, last year but is now a planner on the Sellafield site since completing the programme:

“I had no idea really what I’d do next but I came across this scheme in the local newspaper and immediately saw it as a way to put myself in a better position to get back into work.
The scheme involved some training and some work experience – and although I had lots of experience of doing a certain job I was pleasantly surprised to find out how transferable my skills were.
You won’t get handed a job on a plate but it can do wonders for your confidence, and gives you the platform to show prospective employers what you have to offer.”
19-year-old Abbie Wilkinson also has started a new job since completing the scheme:
– Abbie Wilkinson, candidate of the 'Ready to Work' scheme
“I completed my A-Levels and was working part-time in a shop, but I was struggling to find more long-term opportunities and I didn’t want to leave the area. There’s nothing wrong with shop work, but I’m young and I wanted a full-time role with long term prospects, a career rather than a job. I applied for the Ready for Work scheme as a way of opening up more doors, and I’m really glad I did as it very useful."
The 'Ready for Work' scheme was launched in January by Sellafield Ltd and is managed by Inspira. It offers personal programmes to help enhance employability, for example by improving skills, gaining qualifications, boosting confidence and offering work experience.
Farmers in the South of Scotland have been asking shoppers to consider buying more Scotch lamb.
