Chancellor George Osborne says the economic impact of independence would be 'felt hardest' in the Borders.
He met with business people from the local area today to discuss issues affecting them that the UK Government could help with.
During his visit to St Boswells, he said:
'People in the Borders are concerned about the economic impact of independence. This of course is a decision for the people of Scotland, but I think the economic consequences would be felt the hardest perhaps in the Border areas, and it is another reason why we are better together'.
