Scotland’s First Minister has today written to the UK Prime Minister to begin early discussions to allow a referendum on Scottish independence to take place.
It comes after the Scottish Parliament voted to give the Scottish Government a mandate for a Section 30 order under the Scotland Act 1998 to enable a referendum. An independence referendum held in 2014 gave a result in favour of remaining in the UK Union.
The letter that has been sent is published on the website of the Scottish Government, and is located here.
It is already possible to subscribe to Scotland EHS Legislation Registers and Law Checklists, as part of Cardinal Environment Limited services. In the event that this second referendum results in Scotland exiting the UK Union, then any subscriber to Britain EHS Legislation Registers and Law Checklists will be offered subscription to Scotland, England and Wales as separate systems (and Britain will be discontinued). Northern Ireland is only offered as a separate system.
