“What I want to do as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is to work constructively with the Scottish Government to make a difference for people in Scotland,” Sunak told the BBC. “There are a lot of challenges that we all face collectively across the UK, and where we can work together and make a difference.”
The UK government said the independence question had been settled in a 2014 referendum when Scottish voters rejected the referendum by 55% to 45%. Sturgeon argued that the situation had changed since then, and his semi-autonomous government was pushing for a new referendum.
