That the Parliament acknowledges the decision of the UK Supreme Court in the reference by the Lord Advocate of devolution issues under paragraph 34 of schedule 6 to the Scotland Act 1998; reaffirms its belief that people in Scotland have the sovereign right to determine the form of government best suited to their needs; believes that the United Kingdom should be a voluntary association of nations and that it should be open to any of its parts to choose by democratic means to withdraw from the union, and calls on the UK Government to respect the right of people in Scotland to choose their constitutional future.
Donald Cameron S6M-07429.1 – People’s Right to Choose – Respecting Scotland’s Democratic Mandate
As an amendment to motion S6M-07429 in the name of Angus Robertson (People’s Right to Choose – Respecting Scotland’s Democratic Mandate), leave out from “reaffirms its belief” to end and insert “recognises that the people of Scotland voted decisively to remain within the United Kingdom in 2014; agrees that another divisive referendum should not be a priority during the ongoing cost of living crisis, and believes that it should focus its time on addressing the pressing issues that the country faces, including the current issues facing the NHS.”
Sarah Boyack S6M-07429.3 – People’s Right to Choose – Respecting Scotland’s Democratic Mandate
As an amendment to motion S6M-07429 in the name of Angus Robertson (People’s Right to Choose – Respecting Scotland’s Democratic Mandate), leave out from “United Kingdom” to end and insert “people of Scotland are frustrated with two governments that are more focused on division and their own priorities, rather than the people’s priorities; considers that they should be focusing their time, energy and resources on addressing the cost of living crisis, and the NHS crisis, which is costing lives, and calls on the Scottish Government to focus on delivering the recovery that the NHS urgently needs, as committed to in the Scottish National Party’s 2021 manifesto.”
