BBC survey indicates support for Scottish 'devo-max'

A poll for the BBC's Politics Show indicates that more power for the Scottish Parliament would be the top choice in a multi-option referendum.

The survey by TNS-BMRB found that 33% of Scottish voters backed the option often known as "devo-max".

Support for independence was indicated by 28% of respondents, with 29% backing no further constitutional change.

A parallel poll in England indicated 24% backed Scottish independence, 14% "devo-max" and 40% no change.

The poll was based on the response of 1,020 adults in Scotland and 1,665 adults in England. It was carried out at the end of October.
