The Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has called on the Scottish Government to produce its own "realistic analysis" of the cost of independence. The Treasury is preparing to publish its findings on the financial impact of a Yes vote "in more detail than ever before".
He will use a speech in Edinburgh on Wednesday to launch a fresh attack on the proposals set out in the SNP administration's white paper on independence, focusing on what he described as "over-optimistic assumptions" about oil revenues.
His latest intervention comes a few weeks before the Treasury's most detailed fiscal analysis is due to be published
