The Cabinet Secretary for Finance, John Swinney, has been commenting on the latest report from Westminster on Scottish Independence:
"It will be no surprise to people across Scotland that out of touch unelected Lords think Scotland is too small and too poor.
“All the evidence, including in this report, shows Scotland is in a far stronger financial position than the UK as a whole.
"What the Lords fail to mention is that a No vote would see Scots, within the UK, responsible for over two trillion pounds of debt and liabilities worth 145% of GDP, significantly more than an independent Scotland would face under any calculation."
