THE TWO sides of the Scottish independence debate went head to head yesterday over the state of the nation’s finances if it votes for independence later this year.

Launching a report in Edinburgh, Scottish first minister Alex Salmond said an independent Scotland could generate £1,000 extra revenue per head in 15 years without tax hikes.

Chief secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander claimed Scottish citizens would benefit to the tune of £1,400 per person per year from 2016-17 as part of the UK.
