Liberal Democrat Sir Menzies Campbell MP has today welcomed Labour'sSir Menzies CampbellSir Menzies Campbell commitment to a key recommendation of the Campbell II commission.

In a visit to Dundee today UK Labour leader Ed Miliband announced that the Labour party has committed to using the 2015 Queen's speech to deliver more powers to Scotland if it is elected in that General Election.

This support means that two out of four of the main parties in Scotland, Liberal Democrats and Labour, now back this key plank for securing more powers for Scotland in the event of a No vote later this year.

Commenting, Sir Menzies Campbell MP said:

"Getting parties to put more powers for Scotland into their first Queen's Speech was one of the main recommendations from my Commission in our report in March.

"It means that people in Scotland can be certain that the rejection of independence will open the door to a stronger Scotland inside the United Kingdom.

"The move by Ed Miliband today is a good response to that recommendation. He builds on the growing momentum for more powers for Scotland whilst remaining part of the UK. I welcome his intervention."
