The Government is clear that Scotland benefits from being part of UK and the UK benefits from having Scotland within it. The Government is not making plans for independence as we are confident that people in Scotland will continue to support the Union in any referendum.

There have been no discussions or correspondence, either at ministerial or official level, on the consequences for my Department of Scotland leaving the UK.
