78% of voters want the SNP to prioritise COVID-19 recovery over Indyref2 pursuit.

Over three-quarters of people in Scotland do not want a second independence referendum prioritised over recovery from COVID-19, according to a new poll.


The Survation poll for Scottish Labour, reported in The Herald, found that 78% of voters either ‘strongly’ or ‘somewhat’ agreed that the Scottish Government should prioritise dealing with the recovery - including 64% of SNP voters.


Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:


“The people of Scotland want the government to prioritise what really matters – recovery from the pandemic.


“To even contemplate holding a divisive second independence referendum at this time is grossly irresponsible – and even an overwhelming majority of SNP voters agree it should not be prioritised.


“It will take years for the economy and public services to recover, and all focus should be on rebuilding our country together.”
