Stewart Hosie, the Deputy First Minister, states, in reference to Europe, that “no constituent part of the UK can be taken out of the EU against its will unless England, Scotland and Northern Ireland each vote to leave the EU” (your report, 20 May).

So in the event of the inevitable referendum on independence can we expect Mr Hosie to replace “EU” with “UK” ?
