No u-turn on London banks, says SNP

The SNP government has denied it has performed a policy u-turn by asking London based regulators to oversee Scottish banks in an independent Scotland.

Financial experts have questioned how having the Bank of England as a regulator would work if it had to deal with two separate finance ministries.
