Gavin Newlands MP calls for people to take part in the National Survey
September 7, 2016
Gavin Newlands, MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, is calling for people to take part in the SNP’s National Survey – the biggest ever political listening exercise in Scotland’s history.
The survey is the first phase in the SNP’s new independence initiative and will aim to reach out to two million people in Scotland before St Andrew’s Day — seeking to gain a nationwide understanding of people’s views on Europe, Brexit and independence to grow consensus across Scotland in the wake of recent political events.
The information and insight gathered from the survey will inform the next stage of the campaign.
Gavin Newlands, MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, said:
“We want to understand in detail how people feel now about Europe, Brexit and independence and want to know the concerns that people have and the questions they want answered.”
“The UK that Scotland vote to stay part of in 2014 has changed — and so too have the arguments. That’s why we believe it is right that the SNP now leads a new debate on independence.”
“Please take part in this vitally important national survey and help inform Scotland's future. You can complete the survey at www.survey2016.scot. Please encourage your family and friends to do the same - whether they are for independence, against independence or undecided.”
“This survey will help shape our country’s future and determine the path that we take for years to come.”
