It is important to get the right balance. The hon. Member for Edinburgh East talked about what would happen in an independent Scotland. I do not know what will happen in future. If Alex Salmond wants to run a campaign about keeping the pound, I suspect my hon. Friends may have some material used in previous elections where that was a centrepiece of our campaign. There are important issues to bear in mind but I believe what we have before us is a recognition from the Government of their importance.
