A survey conducted by Greenock based MSP Stuart McMillan has shown an overwhelming majority of Inverclyde residents think the Scottish Parliament should be consulted on the UK’s EU position.
The survey conducted by Mr McMillan at the end of 2014 found that 83 per cent of people believe that Scottish Parliament’s powers should include guaranteed consultation with the Scottish Parliament when deciding the UKs stance in the European Union.
1,634 residents replied to the survey conducted between November 2014 and January 2015.
Commenting, SNP MSP Stuart McMillan said:
“This is a very interesting finding. It shows that 83 per cent of people in Inverclyde believe that any change to the UK’s position in Europe, including any exit from the European Union should not be done without consultation with the Scottish Parliament.
“This would provide a democratic safeguard against Scotland being dragged out of Europe against our will.”
