RUTH Davidson is to signal that the Scottish Conservatives are ready to back more powers for Holyrood in the event of a “No” vote.

In a major speech, she will say the referendum campaign must be a “movement for progress and positive change”.

Davidson will raise the prospect of Tory backing for more powers despite running for leadership on the basis that a “line in the sand” should be drawn on constitutional change.

Speaking on Tuesday, Davidson will say the Better Together campaign must win or “lose forever”.
