Ex-PM Brown wants constitutional reforms for Scotland

Constitutional reforms should be made to create a "union for social justice" in which the UK can pool and share resources for the benefit of all, according to former prime minister Gordon Brown.

Mr Brown says Scotland will be strengthened by his proposed constitutional changes while remaining within the union.

The former PM is due to give a speech on Scotland's future in his constituency today and will say: "I am of the view that the party that first created a powerful Scottish Parliament is best-placed to strengthen devolution and to create a stronger Scottish Parliament in a stronger UK.

"We can show how with our reforms, to be implemented by Labour administrations in Westminster and in Edinburgh, we can address some of the greatest social and economic challenges a future Scotland faces."
