The Confederation for British Industry said it supports Scotland staying in the UK because the proposals for independence "lack clarity".
The Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has set out what she claims are six "compelling reasons" in favour of independence to mark the milestone that it's six months to the Scottish Referendum.
She argues an independent Scotland would create more jobs, spend tax revenues on "Scotland's priorities", protect public services, "guarantee we get governments we vote for", set up an oil fund and have a retirement age in line with Scotland's circumstances.

"The referendum is a choice between taking Scotland's future into Scotland's hands or leaving our future in the hands of an out-of-touch Westminster establishment.
"The No campaign call themselves Project Fear but we have seen a move to Project Threat in recent days with increasingly over-the-top comments.
"So it's no wonder that support for Yes continues to advance in the polls while the No campaign has stalled - with a swing of only around 5% now needed to secure a Yes vote in September."

After the economy, one of the most important issues for voters in the referendum is the future of pensions. What would the retirement age be? And how would pensions be guaranteed in an independent Scotland. Joe Pike looks at the arguments.
MPs from both North and South of the Border have been debating Scottish Independence in Westminster today.
It comes as Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond took the "yes" campaign to London. He's giving a lecture this evening on why he believes Britain and an independent Scotland can still work together.
Peter MacMahon reports from Holyrood:
Sir Alan Beith, MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed, and David Mundell, MP Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, have also been speaking at Westminster.

MPs say Scottish independence would damage the economy in Northern England.
