The debate over oil and independence leads to furious exchanges. 400 jobs

Scotland is urged to look again at its IT needs at the wake of the

the Scots veterans, as personnel and civilians who scope served in Iraq

:00:30.:00:34.

and Afghanistan are honoured with a memorial. The memorial commemorates

Catalans Dragons. Scottish independence and declining

oil revenues led to furious Opposition leaders claimed

:01:13.:01:16.

the slump in the North Sea undermined Scotland's

:01:17.:01:24.

independent economic prospects. The arguments came as the First

:01:25.:01:26.

Minister told the BBC that the autumn of 2018 might be

:01:27.:01:28.

a "common sense" date for a second This from our political

:01:29.:01:32.

editor Brian Taylor. Oil and independence, the two have

:01:33.:01:46.

been twinned for 40 years, since the North Sea bonanza began and the SNP

:01:47.:01:49.

first argued it was a Scottish resource. In a BBC interview Andrew

:01:50.:01:56.

Wilson, who chairs the SNP's economic growth commission, said oil

:01:57.:02:01.

well formed a key part of the referendum's offer in the 2014

:02:02.:02:07.

referendum. The Chancellor's budget confirmed that oil revenues have

:02:08.:02:13.

declined sharply, well below those 2014 forecasts, but Brexit means the

:02:14.:02:17.

First Minister is seriously considering a second independence

:02:18.:02:20.

referendum, possibly next year. Some of your colleagues now talk

:02:21.:02:24.

about autumn 2018 as a likely date. Within that window I guess, of when

:02:25.:02:30.

the outline of the UK deal becomes clear and the UK exiting the EU, I

:02:31.:02:38.

think would be the common-sense time for Scotland have that choice, if

:02:39.:02:40.

that is the road we choose to go for Scotland have that choice, if

:02:41.:02:46.

down. You are not ruling out autumn 2018? Not ruling anything out. Oil

:02:47.:02:50.

and independence, both confronted John Swinney as he deputised for the

:02:51.:02:55.

First Minister, was in London commemorating the Iraq and

:02:56.:02:59.

Afghanistan wars. Firstly, the Tories said all talk of a second

:03:00.:03:02.

independence referendum should be dumped. This morning we had the

:03:03.:03:09.

First Minister gunning for a referendum on independence next

:03:10.:03:13.

year. She called it "common-sense". I call it nonsense because most

:03:14.:03:21.

people in Scotland do not want it. Then, Labour spotlighted the North

:03:22.:03:25.

Sea slump. The truth he can't escape from is the economic case for

:03:26.:03:28.

independence is well and truly bust. John Swinney found this twin attack

:03:29.:03:36.

familiar, as he recalled Labour and Conservative had worked together to

:03:37.:03:41.

thwart independence. Isn't it revealing that the first available

:03:42.:03:46.

opportunity, they've come back together again. APPLAUSE

:03:47.:03:53.

It's, it's like... It's like they've never had a moment apart.

:03:54.:03:58.

It was a magnificent performance by John Swinney, a rhetorical triumph,

:03:59.:04:01.

but did he answer the question about John Swinney, a rhetorical triumph,

:04:02.:04:06.

oil? No, not exactly, just to say Britain had received a bonus from

:04:07.:04:12.

Scotland's oil. In a referendum campaign nationalists would argue

:04:13.:04:15.

the fundamental Scottish economy remains robust and would be nurtured

:04:16.:04:20.

by independence. Then, if, when there is another referendum

:04:21.:04:24.

campaign, other things would also change direction. For example, you

:04:25.:04:27.

can bet Labour and the Tories would be campaigning separately.

:04:28.:04:32.

That debate about the importance of oil to the Scottish economy

:04:33.:04:35.

is likely to feature if there's to be another independence

:04:36.:04:37.

This week, we've been looking at the choices facing

:04:38.:04:41.

the Prime Minister if she's pressed for another Scottish vote.

:04:42.:04:45.

What about the choices facing the Scottish government?

:04:46.:04:47.

Here's our business and economy editor, Douglas Fraser.

:04:48.:04:55.

Listen to both! It's been 13 months since the last in Scotland voted on

:04:56.:05:03.

independence plans. Brexit vote may not have changed everything, but

:05:04.:05:06.

it's changed a lot. The debate has moved on. The big question now,

:05:07.:05:11.

could or should Scotland get back into the European Union or its

:05:12.:05:14.

single market, as the rest of the UK leaves? That raises a lot of

:05:15.:05:19.

economic questions for the independence cause. Trade, the big

:05:20.:05:23.

issue for Brexit. Three years ago the Independent 's proposal was for

:05:24.:05:26.

Scotland have open border trade with the whole of Europe. Then including

:05:27.:05:32.

the rest of the UK, simple. But Brexit would force an independent

:05:33.:05:34.

Scotland to choose. Within the UK goods and people are set to face

:05:35.:05:38.

customs checks, delays, maybe carrots that the border with Europe,

:05:39.:05:42.

depending on how the negotiations go. If an independent Scotland were

:05:43.:05:47.

to be back in the EU, those checks at, delays and tariffs could be at

:05:48.:05:50.

the Scottish and European border with England. So which matters more?

:05:51.:05:55.

Seamless trade with a European market which has more than 400

:05:56.:05:59.

million people in it or a UK market which currently buys four times more

:06:00.:06:03.

from Scotland and the rest of Europe does? That is closely linked to the

:06:04.:06:07.

question of which currency Scots would use. Probably the most heated

:06:08.:06:12.

argument in the last independence campaign. Brexit makes that choice

:06:13.:06:16.

more complex for an independent Scotland. Share the pound or shadow

:06:17.:06:21.

it with power lying in London. Maybe face and EU requirement to you join

:06:22.:06:25.

the Euro or perhaps a new Scottish currency. I think given the Brexit

:06:26.:06:31.

debate and the idea of a relationship between Scotland in the

:06:32.:06:35.

EU and the rest of the UK out of it and the level of this respect that's

:06:36.:06:39.

been shown by the UK Government to Scotland's needs and interests in

:06:40.:06:43.

the last few months, I think it makes it a currency union even more

:06:44.:06:45.

the last few months, I think it unlikely and I think it strengthens

:06:46.:06:49.

the argument for Scotland exploring what would be necessary to create

:06:50.:06:54.

its own independent currency. The third big change raised at Holyrood

:06:55.:06:58.

today is oil. Since the first independence referendum the price

:06:59.:07:08.

has more than half. That sector has slumped. There is now next to no tax

:07:09.:07:11.

revenue. The industry could revive but following cuts in tax rates

:07:12.:07:13.

revenue is unlikely to bounce back. Where would that leave Scotland's

:07:14.:07:16.

public finances? The most recent figures, having to borrow 9% of the

:07:17.:07:21.

whole economy's Anya output in order to sustain public spending levels.

:07:22.:07:27.

The most recent gap between tax revenue and spending, ?15 billion.

:07:28.:07:31.

It's not a sustainable level. Taxation and spending two ways you

:07:32.:07:36.

can address of the deficit. Taxation is not very popular, but it doesn't

:07:37.:07:40.

mean taxes need to be increased. Economic growth will increase your

:07:41.:07:43.

tax base and will increase your revenues from the same level of

:07:44.:07:48.

taxes, so this is one way of addressing the deficit. The other

:07:49.:07:51.

one is making choices about which expenditure items are not priorities

:07:52.:07:56.

for the benefit of Scotland and which of them can be cut. The big

:07:57.:08:02.

change from 2014 is there is no longer have the option of the status

:08:03.:08:07.

quo. Out of the European Union or out of the UK union or out of

:08:08.:08:11.

both... All these routes carry economic risk. Voters would have to

:08:12.:08:16.

choose which set of risks they prefer and where the potential

:08:17.:08:17.

rewards look more attractive. And later in the programme,

:08:18.:08:19.

we'll have a special report from Brussels, where Theresa May

:08:20.:08:23.

is meeting European leaders for the last time before the Brexit

:08:24.:08:25.

negotiations are triggered. 400 jobs are set to be lost

:08:26.:08:28.

in Livingston at a healthcare manufacturer owned by

:08:29.:08:30.

Johnson and Johnson. It's planning to close

:08:31.:08:32.

its Ethicon plant in the town. Our reporter Steven Godden

:08:33.:08:38.

is there for us tonight. Another jobs hit for

:08:39.:08:40.

West Lothian Steven? Another jobs blow for West Lothian

:08:41.:08:47.

question it is. Most of the workforce here are local, involved

:08:48.:08:51.

in that skilled production of medical sutures for surgery, but

:08:52.:08:55.

owned by Johnson Johnson, they are a small part of a much bigger

:08:56.:08:58.

operation. It seems as though size has counted against them. Today

:08:59.:09:04.

staff or called in to meeting to be told if the company's intention to

:09:05.:09:08.

close here. Part of a global restructuring that they announced

:09:09.:09:12.

last year, which would see production moved to existing plants

:09:13.:09:16.

importer Rico, Brazil and Mexico. What will follow now it is a 45 day

:09:17.:09:21.

consultation but the Scottish Government say the focus is very

:09:22.:09:25.

much on finding a new owner for the plant as well as supporting staff.

:09:26.:09:30.

The union say they are shocked and angry, but local politicians have

:09:31.:09:32.

been considering what it might mean for the area. We will be calling for

:09:33.:09:37.

an urgent meeting with Johnson Johnson and also to meet any trade

:09:38.:09:41.

unions, so we clearly want to do all we can and leave no stone unturned

:09:42.:09:46.

to try and ensure a clear future for this plant. Clearly if that proves

:09:47.:09:50.

to be impossible, then that will be a significant impact upon the local

:09:51.:09:57.

economy in West Lothian. They have a long history as an employer in this

:09:58.:10:01.

area. 14 years ago this plant survived when two others in

:10:02.:10:05.

Edinburgh and a distribution centre here in Livingston closed, with the

:10:06.:10:10.

loss of 850 jobs. Tonight though it seems like this plant's time is

:10:11.:10:12.

nearly up. OK, many thanks. Anticipated savings of ?200 million

:10:13.:10:15.

have been lost to Police Scotland after the collapse of a scheme

:10:16.:10:18.

to upgrade all of its IT systems. Public spending watchdog,

:10:19.:10:21.

Audit Scotland, is now urging the force urgently

:10:22.:10:23.

to reassess its IT needs. Our home affairs correspondent

:10:24.:10:26.

Reevel Alderson reports. This is the public face of policing

:10:27.:10:39.

in Scotland. Officers visible to the community, keeping people safe. But

:10:40.:10:43.

off the streets the police presence is just as important, with computer

:10:44.:10:46.

technology driving communications and information handling. But the

:10:47.:10:51.

eight former regional forces all had their own systems and in some cases

:10:52.:10:54.

they didn't talk to each other. The solution with a new national system

:10:55.:11:01.

called ice six. Work began in June 2013 on the project which was to

:11:02.:11:05.

cost ?46 million and save 200 million. Less than a year later,

:11:06.:11:09.

following disagreements between police Scotland and the developer,

:11:10.:11:13.

the contract was change. In August 2015 the system was handed to

:11:14.:11:17.

police, who discovered fundamental flaws and serious errors. A year

:11:18.:11:23.

later, I6 was terminated, the contract are repaid nearly ?25

:11:24.:11:24.

million the police had spent on it. contract are repaid nearly ?25

:11:25.:11:28.

Although there is no loss to the public purse, Scotland's spending

:11:29.:11:32.

watchdog says crucial savings can't now be made. The benefits that were

:11:33.:11:37.

expected to come from the I6 project have been delivered yet and we don't

:11:38.:11:39.

have plans from the police service on how they will achieve those

:11:40.:11:42.

benefits. That matters because of the scale of the funding gap

:11:43.:11:46.

policing is facing and because the changing nature of the work of the

:11:47.:11:57.

police really does rely on them having much better and more flexible

:11:58.:11:59.

IT systems than they currently do. That the body that oversees police

:12:00.:12:01.

Scotland says savings are being made in a series of smaller scale IT

:12:02.:12:04.

improvements. They have delivered 30 national applications since 2013.

:12:05.:12:09.

Indeed, within six months of the I6 programme coming to an end, they had

:12:10.:12:17.

rolled out a national custody system nationwide. That was a key element

:12:18.:12:23.

of I6, so the work goes on. It is crucial it does, with the police

:12:24.:12:28.

Scotland facing a Budget deficit of ?188 million over three years,

:12:29.:12:32.

almost the same amount as the I6 system was supposed to save.

:12:33.:12:35.

British military personnel and civilians who served in Iraq

:12:36.:12:37.

and Afghanistan have been honoured with a memorial, which was unveiled

:12:38.:12:40.

Thousands of Scots served in the three conflicts.

:12:41.:12:45.

Many were injured or killed and Cameron Buttle now reports

:12:46.:12:48.

The Queen's Piper, a Scots soldier who served and fought on the front

:12:49.:13:04.

line in Afghanistan. He pays his tribute to those who never returned.

:13:05.:13:13.

May this memorial commemorate the lives and service of all who took

:13:14.:13:18.

part in the operation... He played at the unveiling of the National

:13:19.:13:21.

Memorial in London to all those, military and civilian, who served in

:13:22.:13:26.

Iraq and Afghanistan. Soldiers like Douglas Jung, who served in Douglas

:13:27.:13:35.

storm, the first Iraq war. The -- Memorial commemorates the dead and

:13:36.:13:39.

injured but also everyone who served in those conflicts and they deserve

:13:40.:13:43.

that commemoration. The three rifles battalion has been based in

:13:44.:13:47.

Edinburgh for more than a decade. It suffered terrible losses across the

:13:48.:13:52.

complex. One tour of Afghanistan cost 16 lives. A lot of the guys who

:13:53.:13:56.

were killed are and still do have a lot of friends, including me, and

:13:57.:14:01.

eyes of my seniority, had friends who were killed on those tours. It

:14:02.:14:07.

is very personal, but we are very family orientated regiment. Any kind

:14:08.:14:10.

of loss, and I don't suppose we are different to any other regiment, we

:14:11.:14:14.

consider ourselves a close family. There are no plans for a similar

:14:15.:14:18.

Scottish memorial. All the names of those who lost their lives serving

:14:19.:14:23.

in Scottish units are recorded at the National War Memorial in

:14:24.:14:27.

:14:28.:14:31.

it definitely seems to be important for the younger generation is coming

:14:32.:14:35.

along. It will be there for the future. There are many memorials

:14:36.:14:39.

across Scotland marking service and sacrifice. This was the most intense

:14:40.:14:44.

period of combat operations since the Second World War, but today was

:14:45.:14:50.

all about recognition for all of those who served during three

:14:51.:14:51.

conflicts that spanned a generation. You're watching BBC

:14:52.:14:54.

scene from Trainspotting. Back now to Brexit and Theresa May

:15:13.:15:19.

is in Brussels this evening for what's expected

:15:20.:15:21.

to be her last European Council summit before the UK

:15:22.:15:24.

starts the formal process But what role, if any,

:15:25.:15:26.

is Scotland expected to play? Our political correspondent

:15:27.:15:29.

Nick Eardley is in That meeting between the EU 28

:15:30.:15:44.

continues at the moment and it should finish very soon. Theresa May

:15:45.:15:47.

will continue to attend summits for some time, months, probably years

:15:48.:15:52.

but when she triggers Article 50, she says within the next three

:15:53.:15:55.

weeks, the relationship will start to change. I've been finding out

:15:56.:15:58.

what the future may look like and what role Scotland might play in

:15:59.:16:00.

shaping it. Welcome to Brussels, the epicentre

:16:01.:16:08.

of European politics, a hub for European institutions, for

:16:09.:16:11.

negotiating and political lobbying. Theresa May was not feeling chatty

:16:12.:16:15.

as she arrived for talks with other European leaders. Almost certainly

:16:16.:16:18.

her last at the top table before Brexit formally begins. At the end

:16:19.:16:22.

of that process, the Prime Minister says the UK will be out of the

:16:23.:16:26.

single market but the Scottish Government still hopes Scotland

:16:27.:16:29.

could be allowed to remain in. As she gets ready to start the formal

:16:30.:16:32.

Brexit process, what role is Scotland playing in this? What are

:16:33.:16:40.

our politicians in Brussels doing? Is there any appetite for Scotland

:16:41.:16:42.

to have different arrangements with the UK leaves? You know better about

:16:43.:16:45.

Scotland's relationship with the EU than this man. David Martin has been

:16:46.:16:48.

a member of the European Parliament for more than 30 years. I would say

:16:49.:16:53.

at the moment, there is sympathy and understanding of what the Scottish

:16:54.:16:54.

Government brought forward those understanding of what the Scottish

:16:55.:16:58.

proposals but I don't think yet that translate into support. Not everyone

:16:59.:17:02.

is convinced by a separate arrangement. The Spanish in

:17:03.:17:05.

particular have reservations. In this building, lobbying for the EU's

:17:06.:17:10.

regions takes place at the man who makes the case for nationalist party

:17:11.:17:14.

says many are listening. Europe understands the Scottish people

:17:15.:17:18.

wanted to remain in the European Union. I think Scotland needs to

:17:19.:17:21.

take advantage of that. What happens in the end, we don't know because

:17:22.:17:24.

nothing has been defined. But there's a limit to what Scottish

:17:25.:17:29.

ministers can achieve. The EU negotiates solely with the UK

:17:30.:17:31.

Government and there's little sign it is about to put Scottish demands

:17:32.:17:35.

on the table. Nevertheless... There's a lot of water to flow under

:17:36.:17:39.

the bridge yet. I'm conscious I may well sound like the last soldier

:17:40.:17:43.

coming out of the jungle but I still think there are solutions. Others

:17:44.:17:46.

think over just a Scotland are all part of your's game. The best deal,

:17:47.:17:50.

they say, is one that works for the whole UK. We need to be absolutely

:17:51.:17:55.

united to get the best possible deal because there are canny negotiators

:17:56.:17:57.

on the other side who will do all they can to disunited the UK to

:17:58.:18:01.

their own ends, to their ends, not too hot Scotland all the UK, but to

:18:02.:18:07.

help themselves. Which of these views is reflected when UK ministers

:18:08.:18:12.

start talks will be confirmed soon. Then the process of discussing where

:18:13.:18:16.

Scotland and the UK stand in Brussels will officially begin.

He's transformed England's rugby team from underachievers to second

:19:25.:19:37.

top of the world rankings. He's Australian. He's Eddie Jones. He's

:19:38.:19:45.

made the adjustment, beautiful strike. His first match in charge

:19:46.:19:51.

was against Scotland in 2016. Eddie's England won that, as they

:19:52.:19:56.

have every subsequent game. Leading to a six Nations grand slam and a

:19:57.:20:00.

3-0 Test series win in Australia. If England win on Saturday, they will

:20:01.:20:04.

equal New Zealand's world record of 18 straight wins. 17 in 17 matches

:20:05.:20:08.

equal New Zealand's world record of under Jones. Every week, it gets

:20:09.:20:12.

harder, and that is the great thing. You know, we have got some good

:20:13.:20:16.

players coming back. Probably the strongest 23 we have picked for a

:20:17.:20:20.

long time. This is the man who wants to stop the Jones juggernaut. Eddie

:20:21.:20:25.

is very competitive, they are a competitive team, they are playing

:20:26.:20:29.

for something that is important to them and an appeal that is important

:20:30.:20:34.

to them. So there will be a number of reasons why it will be a tough

:20:35.:20:38.

game. This is Vern Cotter's third and final Six Nations before he

:20:39.:20:43.

makes way for Gregor Townsend. In 2015, Scotland lost all five

:20:44.:20:47.

matches. Last year, they won two. They have it called that already

:20:48.:20:51.

this season, and if they upset the odds on Saturday, they could go on

:20:52.:20:55.

to be champions. To be perfectly honest, it has not been discussed a

:20:56.:21:00.

lot within the team. Neither has the Calcutta Cup, the triple Crown,

:21:01.:21:05.

nothing, all that has been discussed is the content of the game, trying

:21:06.:21:09.

to get the content right, trying to keep the organisation, the

:21:10.:21:12.

structure, so we can perform at our best. In a way, you could say on

:21:13.:21:17.

Saturday it is an Aussie against a key way, or maybe Jones against

:21:18.:21:21.

Cotto. It is definitely England against Scotland. -- and Aussie

against a kiwi. After the greatest comeback

in Champions League history, Barcelona have been

challenged to a friendly... Both clubs managed to overturn

:21:26.:21:27.

a 4-0 first leg defeat. The Spanish giants

:21:28.:21:32.

did it last night. The Pars have to look

:21:33.:21:34.

a little further back, Look at the forward line you know,

:21:35.:21:46.

we had some great players, Jackie Sinclair, George Peebles, fantastic

players. Trip down memory lane for one of five's favourite folk. Do a

time when Jock Stein was the Dunfermline manager. December 1962

:21:57.:22:01.

trailing 4-0 from the first leg, the Pars beat the Fairs Cup holders

:22:02.:22:09.

Valencia 6-2. It was the start of the halcyon years and we had 41

:22:10.:22:12.

games in Europe at that time and it was a great time for Scottish

:22:13.:22:15.

football, Rangers and Celtic doing really well but Dunfermline were up

:22:16.:22:22.

there with them. The scores, the teams we were beating in Europe,

:22:23.:22:26.

fantastic time. Over half a century on from the European pioneers of

:22:27.:22:31.

eastern part, stars of the present like Messi, Suarez and Neymar also

:22:32.:22:34.

had a 4-0 deficit to turn around. Paris Saint-Germain had scored,

:22:35.:22:39.

meaning 551 would not be enough. Good Barcelona find a sixth? As the

:22:40.:22:45.

fans celebrated, Dunfermline tweeted, "Congratulations, guys,

:22:46.:22:48.

fancy a friendly to say sorry for taking our record?" If the invite is

:22:49.:22:52.

taken up, Barcelona can see the cup that commemorates the defeat of

:22:53.:22:57.

Valencia. In Scottish football history, it must rank as among the

:22:58.:23:01.

best results. You can't take it away from the likes of Celtic, Rangers

:23:02.:23:03.

Aberdeen who have won European trophies. But their resources are

:23:04.:23:09.

much greater than Dunfermline's and four Dunfermline to, as you say,

:23:10.:23:17.

beat Valencia 6-2, it just wasn't really credible at the time and it

:23:18.:23:20.

is very hard to believe it now as well. It is nearly 55 years since

:23:21.:23:24.

Valencia were vanquished on this patch of turf in Fife. But unlike

:23:25.:23:29.

Barcelona last night, there was no happy ending for Jock Stein's side.

:23:30.:23:34.

The Pars lost to the Spaniards in a deciding play-off match.

He's been doing it since he was ten and has an agent. Despite this,

there's astonishment at how many hits the video has got. I had no

:24:25.:24:29.

idea it would go up as much as it did. I'm really surprised. Next

morning I woke up and it was over 100,000 views. It's insane. I don't

days to shoot. Then it took me a while afterwards to edit. It was a

simple idea that Robbie came up to me on the Friday night and the next

day, the next morning, we went into Edinburgh and shot it. Parkour has

been criticised for being risky but this video is opposed to show how

fun. Parkour has been recognised as a sport in the UK for the first
