Most businesses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are "less than captivated" by the independence debate, but would want to continue trading if Scotland votes yes on September 18, the BCC has said.
Director general John Longworth explained:
Businesses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland remain less than captivated by the intense debate unfolding north of the border.
Yet they do have views on the potential impacts of a change in Scotland's relationship with the rest of the UK.
In the event of a Yes vote, cross-border trading and currency arrangements loom large in businesses' thinking.
If Scotland votes No, constitutional questions remain around the devolution of power and the distribution of public funding between nations.
