Nick Clegg has sought to slow down a fast and furious run of Tory policy suggestions, including plans to evict the families of rioters from council houses.

"We welcome the fact that the three pro-UK parties in Scotland have come together to make the positive case for Scotland in the United Kingdom.

"We share the view that Scotland and all of the nations of the UK are stronger together - on the economy and jobs, on defence and security, on our influence in the world and so much more.

"The decision facing Scots is a big one and any decision to leave the UK family would be irreversible.

"So we need a proper debate to get underway, and we are confident that Scots will listen to the arguments and take the positive view that we are all better together."
