Round-up: Understanding proposals for further powers

As the three pro-union parties issue their common statement on more powers for the Scottish Parliament in the event of a No vote the focus is on their proposals and how they might be implemented. 
Charlie Jeffery compares Labour, Liberal Democrat and think-tank proposals. Alan Convery and James Mitchell discuss the Conservatives' Strathclyde Commission report, and James Mitchell also casts his eye over the second report of the Liberal Democrats' Campbell Commission. 
Charlie Jeffery analyses the strategy behind offering more devolution as an incentive to vote No, while Alan Page sets out the process that might be used to develop proposals for more devolution after the referendum. 
Finally, in Scotland on Sunday, John Curtice looks at recent polling to tease out how voters are responding to the prospect of more devolution.
