Alex Salmond meets George Osborne to set out SNP demands

Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond has met Chancellor George Osborne to set out the demands of the incoming SNP government to take more powers for Scotland.

The SNP leader said that Scotland pays more money to Westminster than it receives in a block grant from the UK government, and was running a surplus when compared to the rest of Britain.

He told Anita Anand about SNP plans for the oil industry and taxes, including alcohol which was causing "mayhem" in Scotland and England... plus why an independent Scotland would initially stick to Sterling.
