The Scottish government has published proposals as to how it could retain single market access, including as an independent country, and for the powers of the Scottish Parliament to be "fundamentally revisited". Following the EU referendum, the Scottish government has stated that it wishes to remain at least a member of the European single market and has suggested ways in which this could be achieved, including by Scotland becoming a full member of the EU as an independent country, Nicola Sturgeon’s preferred option. The paper states that the Scottish government seeks access in addition to, but not as a priority over, free movement and trade within the UK.
