Secretary of State for Scotland Alistair Carmichael visited East Dunbartonshire last week.

He joined MP Jo Swinson and local business leaders at a discussion about the independence debate held at a cafe in Bearsden - one of a series of meetings he has held with business people across Scotland.

Ms Swinson said: “The question facing local residents and businesses on September 18 is the most important one in our lifetime.

“There can be no going back from independence.

“As a passionate supporter of Scotland remaining within the UK I am determined to play my part in helping people get access to the information they need to make up their minds.”
