A Scottish vote for independence may result in border checks on the boundary with England under a British Labour government, the opposition leader said on Friday, joining the ruling Conservatives in casting doubt on separatists' hopes for an open border. Scotland votes in a referendum on Sept. 18 over whether or not to separate from the rest of the UK and end a 307 union with England. While the separatist Scottish National Party (SNP) says there will still be free movement of people across the border between Scotland and England, Conservative Home Secretary Theresa May said in March she favoured imposing passport checks.
