“The people of Scotland want to have their say on Scotland’s future in a post-pandemic referendum, and the clearest way to secure that opportunity is with an SNP majority in May.

“While today’s findings are encouraging, they underline the importance of Both Votes SNP at the election to stop Boris Johnson’s Tory party having the whip hand over Scotland.

“It is up to the people who live and work here to decide Scotland’s future, not Westminster governments we didn’t vote for.

“The SNP take nothing for granted and will continue to work tirelessly for every single vote ahead of 6th May.”
