Scottish Economy May Determine Independence Vote, FT Says

Support for a vote on Scottish independence from the U.K. may be determined by the state of its economy, the Financial Times reported.

While less than a third of Scots are committed to supporting independence, many are still undecided and their decision may be swayed by the performance of the economy, the newspaper said.

Should the economy perform badly before the referendum it would reduce support for separating from the U.K., the FT said.

Scotland is due to hold a referendum on independence in the fall of 2014.
