UK and Scottish government ministers said they have held ''constructive talks" on economic matters at a Whitehall meeting.

They issued their statement after a meeting of the Joint Ministerial Committee, made up of the UK government and devolved administrations.

The first ministers of Wales and Northern Ireland attended but Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond did not.

He was unable to attend because of a long-standing meeting in Glasgow.

A spokesman for Mr Salmond said his prior engagement was with potential investors to Scotland.

Prime Minister David Cameron was also unable to attend the meeting.

The Scottish government was represented by ministers Bruce Crawford and Fergus Ewing.
