Scottish Liberal Democrats have said that a full commitment to the Smith Agreement must be front and centre of the first Conservative Queen's speech tomorrow (Wednesday 27th May).

Speaking ahead of the Queen's Speech, Scottish Liberal Democrat Willie Rennie said:

"David Cameron must put the more powers for Scotland agreed by the five-party Smith Commission front and centre of his Queen's speech today.

"It must be delivered in full. No ifs, no buts.

"That commitment will give confidence that Scotland is moving towards the stable, lasting change voted for by the majority of Scots at last year's historic referendum.

"Scottish Liberal Democrats will continue to argue for both governments to honour Scotland's desire for meaningful constitutional reform - pushing democracy back down into local communities and beyond."
