Scotland had an independence referendum in 2014 on a promise it would settle the issue for a generation. It was legal, fair and decisive and people in Scotland voted by a significant margin to remain part of the UK. The Edinburgh Agreement of 2012 committed both the UK and Scottish governments to respect the referendum’s outcome. The UK Government will continue to respect the result of the 2014 referendum.
