First Minister: No Currency Deal, no Debt Deal

Scotland's First Minister speaking to the Vision for Scotland conference at Dynamic Earth on Wednesday 6th August 2014, explains why he will continue to press for and why we will get a currency union. He discusses what other currency options are and why Westminster will accept the deal on offer. This is because if there is no deal on currency there will be no deal on debt. A no debt option looks attractive to Scotland but we would rather have a deal that worked for our friends in the rest of the UK as well as for Scotland. Maintaining a common market and single currency is the solution that works best for all parties.
