Responding to reports that Nicola Sturgeon has warned Scottish civil servants to prepare for a second independence vote, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:

"With all the problems in the country on the economy, education and health the SNP seem only interested in careering towards yet another divisive independence referendum.

"Instead of dividing the country the SNP should rule out another independence referendum now.

"100% of government effort should be devoted to driving improvements in Scotland to make Scottish education the best, to create more jobs and to deliver a step change in areas such as mental health."
