Jeremy Corbyn rules out Scotland independence referendum

Jeremy Corbyn has ruled out holding a referendum on Scottish independence in the first term of a Labour government, even if the SNP wins the majority of Scotlandโ€™s 59 General Election seats.

But the Labour leaderโ€™s aides later backtracked to say the position could change if Nicola Sturgeonโ€™s party wins control of Holyrood in the 2021 Scottish Parliament election.

Mr Corbyn kicked off a two-day tour of Scotland in Glasgow on Tuesday aiming to help his party retake some of the seats it lost to the SNP landslide in the 2015 general election.
