2014 Scottish independence referendum Daily Record David Cameron Ed Miliband Nick Clegg

Daily Record statement

15 Sep, 2014

Clegg, Cameron and Miliband sign a joint statement for the Daily Record promising to transfer more powers to the Scottish Parliament if a No vote is successful:

The people of Scotland want to know that all three main parties will deliver change for Scotland.


The Scottish Parliament is permanent and extensive new powers for the Parliament will be delivered by the process and to the timetable agreed and announced by our three parties, starting on 19th September.

And it is our hope that the people of Scotland will be engaged directly as each party works to improve the way we are governed in the UK in the years ahead.

We agree that the UK exists to ensure opportunity and security for all by sharing our resources equitably across all four nations to secure the defence, prosperity and welfare of every citizen.

And because of the continuation of the Barnett allocation for resources, and the powers of the Scottish Parliament to raise revenue, we can state categorically that the final say on how much is spent on the NHS will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.

We believe that the arguments that so powerfully make the case for staying together in the UK should underpin our future as a country.

We will honour those principles and values not only before the referendum but after.

People want to see change. A No vote will deliver faster, safer and better change than separation.
