Local business reaction to independence plans

ITV Border has been speaking to local haulage form John Miller Transport, based in Lockerbie, who have given their reaction to the White Paper.

"From what i have heard this morning, i haven't heard anything in the White Paper which addresses my concerns.

"So at the moment i would still vote no. My main issues are that there would be two currencies which would adversely affect my business. Also what happens to the price of diesel in Scotland would affect my business.

"And if income tax was different and higher in Scotland, would workers who live in England want to come to work for my company?"

– Davie Carson, Director, John Miller transport
