Energy and Climate Change
Charles Hendry (Minister of State (Renewable Energy), Energy and Climate Change; Wealden, Conservative)
The UK Government's position is clear: Scotland is stronger as part of the UK and the UK is stronger with Scotland in it.
The Government will be arguing the case for Scotland to remain within the UK and the Department of Energy and Climate Change will contribute to the debate.
The Government is not making plans for independence as we are confident that people in Scotland will continue to support the United Kingdom in any referendum.
