A GROUP of 130 business leaders insisted yesterday that the case for Scottish independence “has not been made.”
Company chiefs have signed an open letter highlighting the “uncertainties” of going independent, arguing that “by continuing to all work together we can keep Scotland flourishing.”
The group includes Weir Group chief executive Keith Cochrane, Angus Cockburn, interim chief executive of Aggreko and Victor Chavez of Thales UK.
Mr Cochrane insisted businesses north of the border would face additional costs if there was a Yes vote on September 18.
But Paul Fletcher of the pro-independence group Business for Scotland argued it was possible borrowing costs could be lower north of the border than the rest of the UK because of the strong performance of the country’s economy.
