Paul Dales, economist at Capital Economics, warned that the economics of independence are “even more challenging than at the time of the first referendum in 2014”.

He said: “It would require Scotland to put in place credible plans to cut the budget deficit. The resulting fiscal squeeze would restrain economic growth.”
