SNP members today gathered in Edinburgh for the ‘biggest ever’ National Assembly.

National Assembly is the forum for the development of policy within the SNP. Policy is debated and discussed before being presented to the party for approval at National Council or National Conference. Resolutions from the National Assemblies are likely to be presented to National Council in December and the 2019 Spring Conference.

Keith Brown, the SNP’s Depute Leader who chaired the event at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh, with nearly 500 people in attendance, said:

“The National Assemblies have successfully tapped into the enthusiasm for and possibilities of an independent Scotland. 

“The Edinburgh event was the biggest National Assembly we’ve ever held and there was a real buzz about the venue. Member led group debates – on the Growth Commission report’s findings and a whole lot more – gave us really valuable feedback. 

“And this is just the start of the conversation. New online resources will allow SNP branches across the country the opportunity to have their say on the Growth Commission and wider discussions, both with the Yes family and civic Scotland, will take place in the coming months too. 

“While the Westminster parties are deeply divided and on the brink of implosion over Brexit, our party and the independence movement are in great health and positive about Scotland’s future as an independent country.

"A recent poll showed a majority would vote for Scottish independence after the UK leaves the European Union. The latest Social Attitudes Survey showing that the number of people view independence as a positive for Scotland’s economy now outnumber those who believe otherwise. 

"These indications are greatly encouraging as we continue to build the fresh case for an independent Scotland.”
