The £20 million that SNP minsters earmarked for a second independence referendum should now be spent differently.
Following yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, the nationalists will be unable to hold a divisive vote on their planned timescale for next October.
As a result, Scotland in Union think the millions set aside for spending on this exercise should be reallocated to more important matters.
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:
“There is no shortage of vitally important matters the SNP-Green Government could be spending this public money on.
“That includes support for energy bills, addressing the cost-of-living crisis or helping the poorest people feed their families.
“It would be inexcusable in this environment, especially after the Supreme Court judgement, for the nationalists to hoard millions of taxpayers’ pounds for a nationalist propaganda campaign.”
