Sir: I would ask the Scots and Welsh to consider the profound implications of a "Yes" vote. Political and economic tensions will inevitably build up between the components of the UK. These will result in a highly unstable relationship, which will be damaging to all of us.

If change is desirable, let us do it by modifying existing political entities and include the whole country in such a review. Perhaps we should give more strength to existing local authorities, or extend the proposals for London to other major cities. There will be no winners in devolution as proposed.
