Scotland moves a step closer to independence
Plans are underway a referendum which could lead to the break-up of the United Kingdom. The go ahead is about to be given for a 'Yes-No' vote on full independence from the rest of Great Britain.
British Prime Minister David Cameron and Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond have signed an agreement to hold a referendum in 2014 on Scottish independence, the prime minister's office has said. The deal will allow Scotland to decide in a 2014 referendum whether it should become an independent country or stay within the United Kingdom after three centuries of union with England. Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee speaks to the First Minister, Aex Salmond.
