First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond speaks during the opening ceremony for the 2014 Commonwealth Games at Celtic Park in GlasgowBy Alistair Smout EDINBURGH (Reuters) - With less than a month to go until Scotland votes on independence, nationalists are seeking to broaden the debate away from a difficult focus on what currency would be used after breaking from the United Kingdom.

The British government and Bank of England have both firmly said no. As a result, uncertainty over the currency dogged the normally fiery Salmond in the first TV debate two weeks ago when he was unexpectedly outshone by the more reserved head of the campaign to keep Scotland in the UK, former finance minister Alistair Darling.
