Scotland: General Election and Constitutional Future — 17 Mar 2021 at 15:55

That this House has considered the upcoming Scottish Parliamentary general election and Scotland’s right to choose its constitutional future.
“believes the priority of the Scottish people is to recover from the effects of the covid-19 pandemic, and that it would be irresponsible to hold a referendum at this time.”.
“when we do have our own currency it has to be pegged against the pound sterling”,
“There is an increasing sense among members that the Government have abandoned the police service in the midst of this crisis.”
“I do not speculate on whether it is the end of this year or the beginning of next year.”
“No man has a right to fix the boundary of the march of a nation; no man has a right to say to his country-thus far shalt thou go and no further.”
“The rest of the world would instantly see that we were no longer a front-rank power, or even in the second row.”
“cornerstone of the Scottish Economy”,
“Let me be clear-I want to be judged on this. If you are not, as First Minister, prepared to put your neck on the line on the education of our young people then what are you prepared to. It really matters.”
“the settled will of the Scottish people”.
