Today Scottish Government published draft Bill for second independence vote

The Queen has appointed her grandson Prince William represent her at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

As Lord High Commissioner, Prince William, 37, will represent the Queen, 94, at the Annual General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, which will be held online in May.

William, known as the Earl of Strathearn in Scotland, will make the opening and closing addresses to the Assembly and will carry out a number of official functions as the Lord High Commissioner.

It comes at a crucial time for the Union and just hours after the SNP unveiled its plan for another independence referendum.

It proposes using the same question as in 2014 – ‘should Scotland be an independent country?’ Voting would also be extended to include over 16s, who are generally thought to be more in favour of independence.

The bill says the contest should be held in the first half of the Parliament due to be elected in May. The SNP has said it could be as early as this year.

Nicola Sturgeon was accused of a ‘reckless’ bid to distract from the Alex Salmond probes after choosing to publish the bill today.
