Liberal Democrats Home Rule plan for Scotland

On Thursday 18 September, Scottish voters will go to the polls to decide whether Scotland should remain part of the UK or become an independent country.

Liberal Democrats across the UK are campaigning to keep Scotland part of our family of nations because together we are stronger, safer and more prosperous.

How you can help keep Scotland part of the UK

There are just days until voters in Scotland go to the polls to decide if Scotland remains part of the UK or to go it alone.

Your support will help us to spread the message further that we are better together as a family of nations.

It would help young people with the cost of travel by offering a minimum two thirds discount on bus travel in England. Bus companies would then be able to add their own discounts on top of that.
