Independence forces investors to 'hold on to their cash'

The referendum on Scottish independence risks scaring away investors who will want to "hold on to their cash" until the UK is more settled, the Energy Secretary will warn.

I fear the economic and energy progress will be seriously affected by the uncertainty and disruption of independence, as investors will hold on to their cash rather than risk it.

– Energy Secretary Ed Davey
