London - Arabstoday

Uncertainty surrounding a future independence referendum is damaging the Scottish and UK economy, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury has claimed. Danny Alexander has become involved in a war of words between Westminster and Scots Finance Secretary John Swinney. Mr Swinney has accused the UK government of talking down Scotland. In a letter to Mr Swinney, Mr Alexander said the last thing needed was \"a self-inflicted wound by the Scottish government\". Last week, the Chancellor claimed instability caused by the planned referendum was damaging investment in Scotland.

He raised concerns from a Citigroup report and from CBI Scotland about investor caution and uncertainties arising from the timing of a referendum. The SNP aims to introduce a referendum bill later in its five-year term. Mr Alexander concludes: \"We will continue to do all we can, within difficult fiscal constraints, to support economic growth in Scotland. \"But it would be helpful if the Scottish government recognised that its core policy commitment is causing real uncertainty and took urgent steps to deal with this issue.\"
