Prime Minister of UK, David Cameron, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg and Labour leader Ed Miliband, have pledged to devolve powers to Scotland, if finally imposed the ‘no’ in the referendum on the independence of this territory to be held next Thursday.

The leaders of the different parties have put aside their differences to promise that the ‘no’ in the referendum will mean a strong protection for the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Health System (NHS, for its acronym in English) and other vital public services in the region.

This statement signed by the three political, which has been published by the British newspaper ‘Daily Record’, would have been negotiated by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Scottish Labour. The aim is that a document of this kind contribution “full confidence” on the proposals Cameron, Clegg and Miliband being made.

Specifically, the first part of the agreement promises “new” and “broad” powers to the Scottish Parliament, by ensuring “a process and timetable” previously agreed by the three parties. This transfer will start the same September 19 (the day after the referendum).

By now, the British leaders have indicated that they agree that the UK exists to “ensure security and opportunities for all citizens,” sharing resources “in an equitable manner.”
