British Prime Minister David Cameron said Friday he would consider handing over more power to Scotland, but stopped short of agreeing to demands from Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to grant the territory full fiscal autonomy.Sturgeon called the talks "constructive," and said the two agreed that previously drawn up plans to transfer greater governing powers from London to Scotland should be implemented as soon as possible. But she said she and Cameron disagreed on whether Scotland should control all of its tax and spending policies.Sturgeon's party upended Britain's political landscape last week when it swept 56 of Scotland's 59 seats in the 650-seat U.K. Parliament.The SNP failed to realize its dream of making Scotland an independent country last year, when Scots voted 55 percent to 45 percent to remain inside the U.K. in a historic referendum.
