A "SIGNIFICANT minority" of no voters want decisions about indyref2 made by ministers in Scotland rather than by ministers south of the border, a new poll has revealed.

The survey, carried out for the Progress Scotland think tank set up by former SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson, also revealed that 58% of Scots want the decision on whether there should be a new vote, and the timing of that new vote, to be decided by Edinburgh rather than London.

And 62% said decisions around the questions asked in that referendum be taken by the Scottish rather than UK government.

Mark Diffley, independent polling advisor to Progress Scotland said the survey’s results reflect other polls suggesting “that Scots trust the Scottish government more than the UK government and that the majority want the Scottish government to have most influence over the way Scotland is run.”

He added: “As might be expected, the survey shows that over 80% of those who voted ‘Yes’ in 2014 think the Scottish government should have the final say on all of these issues; however, a significant minority of 2014 ‘No’ voters also back these propositions, including 28% who think it should decide on whether indyref2 should be held, 27% who think it should decide its timing and 33% who think it should have the final say on the question posed.”

Robertson said the poll, the first to be conducted on indyref2 since the Scottish Government published their referendums legislation last month, showed a "strong majority for Scotland’s future to be decided in Scotland and not by the UK government."

He added: "Progress Scotland is particularly interested in the changing views of people in Scotland in relation to independence.

“We are about to begin a round of focus group research to better understand what is is making the open minded and undecided change their thinking”
