Scots referendum question set

Scots referendum question set

The SNP has suffered an embarrassment after the Electoral Commission scotched its preferred question for the independence referendum.

The Commission today ruled that the SNP's preferred wording - ‘Do you agree that Scotland should be an independent country?’ - was a leading question.

Instead they said that the question Scots should be asked was ‘Should Scotland be an independent country? Yes/No?’.

The Scottish government has confirmed it is accepting the Commission’s recommendations.
