Views from the board

  • Scottish businesses have been too reluctant in the past to speak up about the possible implications of Scottish Independence. I believe we have a duty to find our voice in this debate, to help improve wider understanding of the likely economic implications of separating from our largest trading partner, the rest of the UK.
