Referendum

 

Jacob Rees-Mogg

 

NC20

 

To move the following Clause:—

 

‘(1)    

No provision of this Act is to come into force, save for this section, until a

 

referendum is held in Scotland in accordance with this section within four months

 

of Royal Assent to this Act. The question shall be—

 


 

The Scotland Act increases the powers devolved to the Scottish Parliament.

 

Should there be full independence for Scotland instead?

 

(2)    

If more votes are cast in the referendum in favour of the answer “No” than in

 

favour of the answer “Yes”, then the Act shall come into force in accordance with

 

section 39 below.

 

(3)    

If more votes are cast in the referendum in favour of the answer “Yes” than in

 

favour of the answer “No”, then the Act shall not come into force.

 

(4)    

The referendum shall be held in accordance with provisions which the Secretary

 

of State shall make by Order made by statutory instrument, applying the

 

provisions in sections 2, 3, 5 and 6 of, and relevant Schedules to, the

 

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act 2011 so as to reflect the

 

limitation of the referendum to Scotland; and the Order shall be subject to

 

annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament.’.
