Scottish independence: Osborne's £24m boost for Glasgow
George Osborne announces nearly £24m in new UK Government funding for Glasgow's life sciences, business and arts sectors.
The UK Chancellor was addressing the Commonwealth Games Business Conference in Glasgow.
Health technology will receive £17m, and a further £1.7m will be used to establish a new business centre in the Merchant City area of Glasgow.
Mr Osborne went on to pledge a further £5m to help renovate Glasgow School of Art after it was damaged by a fire earlier this year.
