Scottish Secretary Michael Moore: 'Fair referendum is what matters'

The Scottish government has agreed to change the wording of its independence referendum question, after concerns it may lead people to vote ''Yes''.

SNP ministers wanted to ask voters the yes/no question: "Do you agree that Scotland should be an independent country?" in autumn 2014.

The wording of the question will now be altered to: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"

The change was suggested by the Electoral Commission watchdog, and Scottish Secretary Michael Moore said it has his backing.
