SNP urged to ‘come clean’ about second independence referendum

The Guardian says the Scottish government has been urged to “come clean once and for all” about whether it has the power to legislate for a second independence referendum at Holyrood.

A limited selection of legal advice was published on Tuesday after a lengthy freedom of information battle with the Scotsman newspaper, but the key question of whether the SNP government has been advised that putting forward a bill for a second independence referendum is within the powers of the Scottish parliament is not included in the disclosure.

Holyrood opposition parties condemned the “murky secretive approach” after the limited publication was forced by a ruling from the information commissioner, who stated there was “exceptional” public interest in revealing the advice.
