With only 9 days to go until the General Election, the SNP today published their Manifesto which seeks to set out a responsible fiscal plan which can end austerity and free up resources to invest in public services, protect family budgets and halt cuts to social security support for working families and the disabled.
The key commitments are as follows:
- Holding a second independence referendum at the end of the Brexit process when the final terms of the deal are known. The Manifesto confirms that the SNP believes that if Scotland chooses to become independent, Scotland should be a member state of the EU
- Demanding a place for Scotland at the Brexit negotiating table and the inclusion of the case for a place in the Single Market in the UK’s negotiating remit
- Seeking a cast-iron Guarantee from the UK government that they will seek consent from the Scottish Parliament to the terms of the Brexit Bill
- Opposing any attempts by the UK government to scrap the Human Rights Act and withdraw the UK from the ECHR
