Today the Electoral Commission announced its recommendation on the question for Scotland's referendum on Independence.
"Should Scotland be an Independent country?"
Blair Jenkins, Chief Executive of Yes Scotland, said today he was pleased that the issue over the referendum question had taken a major step towards resolution following the Electoral Commission's recommendations.
He said: "The report is an excellent step forward. I am very pleased with this question, which officially designates the Yes and No campaigns, and with the proposed funding arrangements. The Electoral Commission was asked to come forward with proposals for a level financial playing field, taking into account the particular circumstances of Scotland's political system, and that is exactly what they have done.
"I am sure that the Scottish Parliament will now move quickly to agree these matters, so that everybody knows precisely what they will be asked when they go to vote in the autumn of next year.
"Agreement over the referendum question will mean another major piece of the process jigsaw is in place and we can continue to move the debate from the “how” to the “why” of an independent Scotland.
"Throughout this year and next, the Yes campaign will be fully focused on providing people with detailed information about why Westminster is not working for Scotland and why independence is the best way to achieve the kind of Scotland that matches our values, aspirations and priorities.’
