Holyrood to get new budget powers under Scotland Bill

Scotland will receive major new financial powers worth £12bn under UK government plans which will see it control a third of its budget.

Scottish Secretary Michael Moore outlined the tax and borrowing powers as he published the Scotland Bill.

Other areas, including control over air weapons and drink-driving and speed limits, will also be devolved.

But the SNP Scottish government said the bill was too limited, and branded it a "missed opportunity".

Glenn Campbell reports.
