An independent Scotland will keep the pound "because it's our currency too" a spokesperson for Alex Salmond insisted.
He said: "An independent Scotland will keep the pound because it's our currency, too, and pensions and public services will be more sustainable after a yes vote because Scotland's economy is stronger than the UK's."
He added that support for the yes vote had been as high as 48% in recent polls.
He said: "We are looking forward to the debate as an opportunity to communicate the positive message why Scotland can, should and must have the powers of an independent country."
