(Scottish Financial News) All of Scotland’s producers of new polymer bank notes have confirmed that their cash is free of any animal products.

Royal Bank of Scotland, Bank of Scotland and the Clydesdale Bank were all asked to make statements about the contents of their notes after vegans throughout Britain reacted angrily yesterday to news that the Bank of England’s new ‘plastic’ £5 note contains animal fat.

Vegetarians were outraged that new BoE fivers were made with tallow, a substance produced from animal fat that is often used in the manufacturing of candles and soap.
