Troubled waters

Why has no UK party pledged to return to Scotland the 6,000 square miles of Scottish territorial waters, rich in oil, gas and fishing stocks, stretching from Berwick to Carnoustie, generously transferred to England by the last Labour government? (six oil fields were included).

No explanation has ever been offered by Westminster for 
an unprecedented annexation, shrouded in secrecy. Does this 
revert to Scotland after independence?
