HMG must ensure strict border checks already set up (& ready to go) from day 1, should Scotland become independent after the independence referendum

This is analogous to border checks in England & Wales to prevent illegal immigration from Eire, The time for debate, discuss & contingency plan on this issue is now. If Scotland choose to become independent from UK, strict border checks on all migrants from Scotland entering England & N. Ireland would become necessary in order to prevent illegal immigration. This possibility should be debated, discussed, considered & prepared for. In addition to free NHS, prescriptions, schooling and higher education; an independent Scotland may find it difficult to also fund affairs of state like: border checks, immigration, Scottish passports & driving licences, embassies, foreign affairs, EU membership, civil service, Inland Revenue, momentary system, policing, prisons, legal aid, welfare benefits, etc, etc. Independent Scotland’s economy may well be stretched. Also new RN warships may not be built in an independent Scotland.
