Quotes

Speaking after the 55% No to 45% Yes vote was finally confirmed, Alistair Morris said it was now "important for everyone to come together and respect the will of the people"
And on the promises of further devolution he commented: "Scotland will expect these to be honoured in rapid course. Just as a reminder, we have been promised a second reading of a Scotland Bill by 27 March next year, and not just the 1.6 million Scots who voted for independence will demand that that timetable is followed but all Scots who participated in this referendum will demand that that timetable is followed."
Managing partner Peter Duff commented: "Keith is an excellent litigator and has been instrumental in the development of the firm's insolvency and restructuring services, focusing on early intervention for distressed businesses as well as advising on buyouts and takeovers when issues arise."
...And there should be more precision as to the "form of identification” to be requested by registrars, in particular to require some form of photographic identification."
