Nicola SturgeonTory 'in-out' referendum is only threat to Scots business and jobs

Commenting on remarks to be delivered this evening at the CBI dinner in Glasgow by the organisation's President Sir Mike Rake, in which he warns of the dangers to business of Westminster's planned in-out referendum on European Union membership, Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: "This is a humiliation for the Prime Minister on the same day one of his MPs has defected to UKIP, exposing the deep Eurosceptic seam running through the Tory Party which is dragging the UK ever closer to the exit door of Europe.

"For David Cameron to be lectured by one of the UK's most senior business figures about the dangers of his in-out referendum on EU membership shows just how worried companies are about the prospect of the UK being taken out of Europe.

No camp leader Alistair Darling has faced pressure to explain his defence of the Tories' running of the NHS south of the border – as it emerged that he and over 200 other MPs and Peers have received payments from companies involved in private healthcare.

Details of Mr Darling’s payments from private healthcare companies are reported in today’s Sun, and the Communications Workers Union has published scathing criticism of parliamentarians involved – which highlights a fee of £10,200 received by Mr Darling for addressing a dinner organised by Cinven – which has significant interests in private sector healthcare.
