Scottish Government constitution plan ‘at-a-glance’
ANALYSIS: The BBC have produced a primer on the key points of the Scottish Government’s constitutional plan.
The legislative steps to be taken and proposed interim and permanent constitutions are discussed, following Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement of the Scottish Independence Bill earlier today.
Scotland’s Deputy First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has set out proposals for an Independence Bill, intended to lead to a written constitution for an independent Scotland.
If Scots vote "Yes" on 18 September, the Scottish government intends to introduce the bill to the Scottish Parliament as part of preparations for the transition to independence it believes would happen on 24 March, 2016.
