MPs warn Scotland that world role could shrink
Severin CarrellA cross-party committee of MPs has warned that an independent Scotland would lose its "transformational" influence on tackling global poverty and improving development.
The international development committee said Scotland's role on the world stage would shrink after independence, ending its influential role through the UK in institutions such as the World Bank, and could lose about 500 civil service jobs.
Scottish ministers rejected many of its warnings, arguing instead that Scotland would invest in being "a good global citizen".
