Will there be another independence referendum?

The SNP is strongly committed to giving Scotland a choice on our future after the covid crisis.

Tackling Covid to keep people in Scotland safe has been, and will remain, the top priority of an SNP Government.

However, after the pandemic in Scotland is over, our great national mission – as it will be for all other countries –  will be how to recover and rebuild.

After the SNP decisively won the 2021 election and there is an increased pro-independence majority, there can be no moral or democratic justification for Boris Johnson or any Westminster government to obstruct the right of the people of Scotland to decide their own future.

We propose that the referendum should be held once the Covid crisis has passed – but in good time to decide that we want to equip our Parliament with the powers it needs to drive our long term recovery.
