Government Response

Friday 12th February 2021

The UK Government continues to respect the decision of the people of Scotland who voted decisively in 2014 to remain part of the United Kingdom.


The referendum on Scottish independence in 2014 was legal, fair and decisive and the people of Scotland voted by a significant margin to remain part of the United Kingdom. The Edinburgh Agreement committed both the UK and Scottish governments to respect the referendum’s outcome. The Prime Minister wrote to the First Minister of Scotland in January 2020 to confirm he cannot agree to any request for a transfer of power from the UK Parliament to the Scottish Parliament that would lead to further independence referendums.

Scotland benefits greatly from being part of a strong United Kingdom and the UK Government is committed to continuing to protect and promote the combined strengths of our Union, building on the historic bonds and common values we share. Now, more than ever, it is important all parts of the United Kingdom work together to protect lives and livelihoods and drive our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
