Michael Moore on Scotland independence referendum date

The Scottish secretary has said he would prefer a single question to be put in the independence referendum about Scotland leaving the UK.

Michael Moore said the poll could take place next year and there was no need to wait for the SNP bid for a 2014 poll, as he said: "Let's get on with it."

Andrew Neil asked the Liberal Democrat minister about the poll, as they discussed the consultation about the detail of the referendum promised by the ruling party at Holyrood.
