Sturgeon's Scottish indy bid faces stumbling block as No10 sends argument to Supreme Court


“On the question of legislative competence, the UK government’s clear view remains that a Bill legislating for a referendum on independence would be outside the legislative competence of the Scottish parliament.”

Scotland’s law officer Lord Advocate Dorothy Bain QC referred a prospective referendum Bill to the Supreme Court last month to ascertain if it was within the powers of the Scottish Parliament.

It is understood the UK government has asked for the Court’s permission to publish the submission by the Advocate General for Scotland Lord Stewart QC.

The hearing is set to take place on October 11 and 12 in London.
