Margaret Burgess, MSP for Cunninghame South, which includes Stevenston, is calling on everyone to play their part in shaping the referendum on Scottish independence.
“The referendum should be built in Scotland, by the people of Scotland, rather than limited by the strings and conditions of Westminster. So, I am asking my constituents to play their part. That is why I want to see as many people as possible take part in the Scottish Government’s consultation and help to shape the way the referendum in 2014 will be held.”
Mrs Burgess said the consultation presented an opportunity for everyone to “have a huge impact on the most important decision that Scotland has faced for 300 years”.
The SNP MSP added, “To improve Scotland more and build a better country we need the full range of powers available to an independent country. Nobody cares more about making Scotland a success than people in Scotland, and independence will give us the ability to meet the aspirations we all hold for this country.”
