Responding to a new poll which shows only 23% of Scots think Nicola Sturgeon should call an independence referendum in the Autumn, Scottish Liberal Democrat Europe spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP said:

"Less than a quarter of people want Nicola Sturgeon to launch a new independence campaign in the Autumn. Could it be any clearer?

"Brexit has shown people the confusion and turmoil that comes with ripping nations apart from their neighbours. Independence would compound the chaos of Brexit. Unsurprisingly enough, people are not in favour of jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

"Scotland needs a positive vision for the future. One where the government is focused on investing in public services and peoples' talents."
