Staying in the UK would mean further cuts to Scotland's budget, hindering business by taking away valuable public services they rely on, a leading SNP MP claims.
SNP's Treasury spokesman Stewart Hosie responded to BCC findings that 85% of businesses outside of Scotland wanted it to stay in the union:
On top of unprecedented cuts we've already seen, senior figures at Westminster are committed to slashing another £4 billion from Scotland's public services - and this survey finds that businesses outside Scotland would pile further pressure onto the UK Government to do this.
Businesses also stated that the referendum debate has had no impact on their business decisions - this blows away No camp attempts to scaremonger to the contrary.
The biggest threat to UK business is Westminster's obsession with a referendum on EU membership that could see us ripped out of the European Union.
