This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Scottish Government,

In light of the currency situation in the event of Scottish Independence as it stands at present Scotland would have no currency.

Therefore, can you please confirm if there is any truth in the rumour Mr Salmond has been spending a lot of time
phoning Toys R US, Argos, John Menzies etc. in an attempt to buy up all the monopoly games for putting plan B into action?

After all toy money is probably better than no currency at all!
