Indyref2: Supreme Court judges asked to resolve 'festering issue'


The UK's highest court has been urged to resolve the "festering" issue of whether Holyrood can set up a Scottish independence referendum without the agreement of Westminster.

สล็อต แจ็ ค พอ ต แตกง่าย 2021 If you play with a website that can be recharged without a minimum. For example, on our website, the system is open to top-up the game in a way that players can top up with no minimum amount.

Two days have been set aside for the hearing at the Supreme Court in London.

The Scottish government's top law officer, Lord Advocate Dorothy Bain, argued it was in the "public interest" to settle the question.

But the UK government wants the court to refuse to rule on the case.

It argues that the question is beyond the court's jurisdiction – and that it can only give a judgement if the bill has been passed by MSPs.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wants to hold an independence referendum on 19 October 2023, but this is opposed by the UK government.

The Scottish government case in the Supreme Court argues the referendum is "advisory" and would have no legal effect on the Union.

UK law officers argue the constitution is reserved to Westminster and it is therefore a matter beyond the powers of the Scottish Parliament.

Ms Bain said former Lord Advocate Lord Mackay of Drumadoon had predicted that this would become a "festering issue" - and that he had been proved correct.

She said she could not allow a referendum bill to go before the Scottish Parliament because she does not have "necessary degree of confidence" that it falls within devolved power.
