Asked whether the Prime Minister (PM) would be speaking to ordinary members of the public in Scotland today and whether he had any reservations about the visit, the Prime Minister?s Official Spokesperson (PMOS) said this visit would be the PM?s ninth to Scotland this year and he would be visiting again next week. He said the PM would be visiting businesses today and speaking to people and had met with groups of undecided voters on several occasions in the past. The PMOS said the PM had always been clear that there was no room for complacency, that the arguments had to keep being made all the way to referendum day and it was right that the people of Scotland were given this choice.

When asked whether Sir John Major?s comments this morning had been helpful, the PMOS said the PM welcomed the voices of those who had been making the case for the UK staying together. He said the PM?s message was that we want the people of Scotland to stay part of the UK, which was also what Sir John was saying.

Asked whether this was the most significant moment in the PM?s political life, the PMOS said the essential point was that the referendum was of vital importance to the people of Scotland, and the choice was about the future of Scotland.
