Scotland faces “a more immediately uncertain world” if it votes for independence, Foreign Secretary William Hague has said.

The Tories’ pledge to reform the EU and then hold an in/out vote in 2017 is “the positive way to look at the future of the EU”, while Scottish independence would mean immediate ejection and lengthy re-entry negotiations for a “pay more get less” deal, the Conservative MP said.

Mr Hague was in Glasgow yesterday to launch the latest in a series of UK Government Scotland Analysis papers, with today’s focus on the European Union (EU) and international issues.
