Curran: Independence 'would reduce flow of border trade'
The shadow Scottish secretary Margaret Curran has told people in Dumfries and Galloway and the Borders today an independent Scotland would "reduce the flow of border trade." The SNP have argued this assertion is based on inaccurate data.
The Shadow Scottish Secretary Margaret Curran has been in Dumfries and Galloway today to launch a paper that claims independence will reduce the flow of trade between Scotland and the rest of the UK by more than 80 percent.
The 'Yes Scotland' campaign says that the paper is irrelevant as it draws on out-of-date data from Canada and the USA.
Margaret Curran toured a factory in Lockerbie to highlight the so-called border effect earlier today, as Jenny Longden reports.
