The emergency move for all three of the main Westminster party leaders to go to Scotland tomorrow - throwing aside all previous plans - was agreed on Monday afternoon at a meeting between Ed Miliband and David Cameron.

The Guardian's political editor, Patrick Wintour, reports:

    For Cameron it is a dramatic change of plan because he has been insisting he will not go to Scotland until next week.

    The agreement not to attend PMQs was taken at a meeting between Cameron and Miliband. It follows intense criticism of Cameron for not planning to go to Scotland until next week. He had been advised that his presence would be a negative influence, but a mixture of his own desperation at the prospect of losing the union and the belief that something desperate was needed to revitalise the no campaign changed his thinking.

    The two men made the decision in the knowledge that one poll had suddenly put the yes campaign ahead, and another was about to be published confirming the trend showing the two campaigns were neck and neck.
