Voters back ‘devo plus’

Holyrood should be given more powers short of independence, according to a new poll.

The result means the most popular option is not likely to be on the ballot paper in the referendum in autumn 2014, which is expected to offer a straight Yes or No to independence.

Known by supporters as “devo plus”, it would see the transfer to Edinburgh of income and corporation tax.

The poll of 1003 people showed 41 per cent prefer devo plus, with the status quo on 29 per cent and independence on 27 per cent.
