Short Answers to Popular Questions about Scottish Independence

The Euro

Q. After independence, would we be forced to use the euro?

A. No, we're going to use the pound.

There are no rules that force EU member countries to join the euro. The UK doesn't use the euro, and nor does Denmark or Sweden. In fact, of the 28 countries in the EU, 10 don't use the Euro. And neither will we.

We'll continue to use the pound.
