  • Submitted by: Nicola Sturgeon, Glasgow Southside, Scottish National Party.
  • Date lodged: Monday, 27 January 2020
  • Motion reference: S5M-20615
  • Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, 29 January 2020

That the Parliament recognises the sovereign right of the people of Scotland to determine the form of government best suited to their needs; agrees with the cross-party Smith Commission report published after the 2014 referendum and backed by the UK Government that "nothing in this report prevents Scotland becoming an independent country in the future should the people of Scotland so choose"; recognises that there has been a material change in circumstances since 2014 and that a referendum should be held so that the people of Scotland can decide whether they wish it to become an independent country, and calls on the UK Government to reach an agreement with the Scottish Government on such a referendum taking place on a date and in a manner determined by the Scottish Parliament, which the Scottish Government proposes should take place in 2020.
