... allow us to use our own resources and shape our own fiscal and economic policies for Scottish needs and circumstances. This will ensure greater economic security and opportunity in the future.

When we were in Scotland however, the view of business organisations was less confident. Uncertainty and lack of information were key areas of concern for them, alongside the position of an independent Scotland in the European Union, the future currency and the regulatory regime.
