Less than a third of people in Scotland support Nicola Sturgeon’s timetable for a second independence referendum next year, a new poll suggests.

Just 29 per cent said a vote should be held before the end of 2023, while 60 per cent said another vote should not be held in that timeframe.

Even among those who backed the SNP in last year’s Holyrood election, 36 per cent said there should not be a second referendum next year.

Critics said the poll showed voters want the Scottish Government to “prioritise what really matters to them – not the SNP’s obsession with constitutional division”.
