More Devolved Powers To Be Unveiled

Plans to devolve more powers to Scotland inside the UK will be unveiled within days after a shock poll put the Yes camp in the lead for the first time.

Chancellor George Osborne said the final touches were being put to proposals for "much greater'' fiscal autonomy and tax-raising abilities.

He insisted the YouGov research for the Sunday Times - which found pro-independence campaign ahead by 51% to 49% - should galvanise those who wanted to keep the union together.

Mr Osborne denies dire warnings about the dangers of splitting up had backfired.

He said: "This country faces a very, very big choice. Scotland faces a very big choice.

"If people were in any doubt that they can stay at home, that they don't need to go out to the polls and vote No to avoid separation, they won't be in that doubt today.

"They should also be in no doubt about the consequences of this decision - one of which is that Scotland will not be sharing the pound as an independent country with the rest of the UK if the separatists win the vote.''
