Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has said he is confident the Liberal Democrats will do "very well indeed" at the next General Election and predicted they would hold on to seats.
Mr Alexander even suggested the Lib Dems could gain seats in some areas.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has said the recent narrowing between the Yes and No votes in polls shows that "every vote has to be fought for".
He said there are still "huge unanswered questions" which the Yes Scotland campaign has to deal with, especially surrounding the issue of currency.
The Liberal Democrats have called for a reform of the "bedroom tax" in a dramatic withdrawal of support for the controversial welfare reform.
Speaking to The Mirror, Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said it's time to "take stock and change our approach."
With only one in 20 of affected claimants having successfully downsized, it’s clearly time to take stock and change our approach in this particular area.

Danny Alexander has said the Liberal Democrats' poor performance at the Newark by-election was a "deeply disappointing result," but was due to "tactical voting" from the party's supporters.

He put some of the decline down to voters not wanting to see Ukip win the seat from the Tories, saying: "The last thing our supporters wanted was to be represented by Ukip in the House of Commons, therefore there was a lot of switching to other parties."

Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, has told ITV News' Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship the government's pay deal to public sector workers is a "right, fair balance".

Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has said that the risks of Scottish independence are "becoming ever clearer". He said: "What we've seen today with Standard Life and RBS are the risks of independence becoming ever clearer."

"These businesses are reasonably and fairly setting out the consequences of the SNP’s dangerous, risky, and unclear plans for independence. I doubt they’ll be the last.”
