Referendum survey launched

Scottish Borders Chamber of Commerce (SBCC) has launched a survey to its membership to identify what information the business community is looking for in the lead up to the referendum on Scottish independence – and where they are looking to find it.

Working with economist Professor David Bell, the survey aims to establish a comprehensive picture of information needs across the Scottish business community.

SBCC convener, James Aitken, said:“We are delighted to be working in partnership with one of Scotland’s most eminent economists to conduct this study into what the business community in Scotland needs to know in the lead up to the referendum next year. The survey results will be published and presented to the media and political campaigners to make sure they are fully aware of the issues on which the business community is seeking their engagement. We will also use the survey to shape our work in the lead up to the referendum.”
