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.
