UNISON Scotland response to government consultations on Scotland’s constitutional future

March 2012

UNISON Scotland has published its response to the consultations of the UK and Scottish governments on the procedures for a constitutional referendum.

The full response is online here:

UNISON Scotland  believes that the referendum on Scotland’s constitutional future is too important to be rushed. However, that time should be used effectively by civic Scotland to develop a credible proposal for extended devolution and the Scottish Government to publish its proposals on independence without further delay.

UNISON Scotland understands the need for this early emphasis on fair procedures and independent oversight. However, we believe the debate should move on to consider a vision for the sort of Scotland we would want to live in, against which we can judge constitutional proposals. We intend to fully engage our members in that process.
