Cut Scotland's public spending if it stays in UK, poll told

New research suggests almost half of Welsh voters think public spending should be cut in Scotland if the country remains part of the UK.

It also found voters in England and Wales opposed Scottish independence.

However researchers at Cardiff and Edinburgh universities also found people in England were more likely to take a hard line against Scotland, whatever the outcome of the independence referendum next month.

Prof Richard Wyn Jones, from the Wales Governance Centre at Cardiff University, spoke to Wales Today.
