Question ref. S4W-15133
Asked by: Annabelle Ewing, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 17 May 2013


To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to publish information on the economic opportunities of independence.

Current status: Answered by Nicola Sturgeon on 20 May 2013


I am delighted to announce that the paper Scotland’s Economy: the case for independence will be published on 21 May 2013. A copy will be lodged with SPICe under bib number 54973.

The paper highlights the strengths of Scotland’s economy across a range of key sectors, our fiscal position and Scotland’s potential for growth. The paper also explores the social, economic and geographic inequalities that have developed under the UK system and the opportunities for Scotland’s economy that would flow from independence.
