Scotland's pro-independence First Minister Alex Salmond speaks during question time at the Scottish parliament in Edinburg Thursday Feb. 27, 2014. British financial group Standard Life said Thursday it is drawing contingency plans to move some of its operations out of Scotland in the event it votes for independence — a decision certain to stoke debate about the fate of business after the Sept. 18 ballot. The vote has raised a number of issues for companies, including what sort of currency would be used. (AP Photo/Dave Cheskin/PA) UNITED KINGDOM OUT
