First Minister Alex Salmond and deputy Nicola Sturgeon will outline the SNP vision of an independent Scotland when they launch their White Paper in Glasgow tomorrow.

The long-awaited document, which will have 170,000 words on 670 pages in 10 chapters, will be revealed at the Science Centre.

The Scottish Government is billing it as "the most detailed and comprehensive blueprint for an independent country ever published" and will be available to anyone who requests a copy.

Ms Sturgeon said the "landmark" document would see a shift in the dynamics of the debate about Scotland's future.

The SNP hopes the answers provided in the publication will allow the party over the next nine months to persuade a majority of people that independence is the best option for Scotland. The referendum vote is September 18 next year.

Ms Sturgeon said "It is a landmark document that sets out the economic, social and democratic case for independence.

"It demonstrates Scotland's financial strengths and details how we will become independent.

"The White Paper has economic growth, jobs and fairness at its heart.

"The route to a successful Scotland is greater economic growth that benefits all and which supports greater participation - particularly amongst women - in the workplace and the economy as a whole.

"Ensuring that work pays, for example through a decent minimum wage, is central to our economic and social approach.

"We will not succeed and reach our full potential as long as we are locked into an unbalanced Westminster-controlled economy that disproportionately benefits one region and one section of society."

The White Paper also reveals the date Scotland will become independent if there is a Yes vote. It will be March 24, 2016. March 24 is the anniversary of both the Union Of The Crowns in 1603 and of the signing of the Acts of Union in 1707

The SNP hopes the document will give people answers to the question they need and begin to see a change in the polls, which have a Yes vote trailing behind, with about 30% support

Ms Sturgeon said: "With this guide providing the positive case for a vote in favour of independence, the dynamic of the debate will decisively shift with its publication."

However, Scottish Secretary Alistair Carmichael said the Union was in the interests of all UK voters. He said: "What we have got to get across is that this is a very real danger to the future of the United Kingdom and that, in fact, the United Kingdom is good, not just for Scots.

"It's good for people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland as well. This should not just be allowed to become some sort of Punch and Judy match between Edinburgh and London."
