Strathkelvin and Bearsden’s MSP has urged her constituents to join “the final push” for what’s billed as the SNP’s biggest ever listening exercise.

Rona Mackay MSP wants people to take part in an online survey which closes on November 30.

The National Survey is the Scottish National Party’s bid to find aimswhat the people of Scotland think of the referenda that have happened over the last two years.

More than 1.6 million people are said to have taken part so far.

Ms Mackay said: “It’s so important we make the people of Scotland’s voices heard as we move into the future in these turbulent political times.

“Another important aspect of the National Survey is that we are asking people who were ineligible to vote in the EU Referendum to tell us what they think as well.

“They could be 16-17 year olds, who are eligible to vote in Scottish elections, but not in UK elections.

“They could be EU nationals who have lived and worked in Scotland for years, but were turned away because of the colour of their passports.”

The survey is also available in Polish, Urdu, Punjabi, Chinese, French and Gaelic.
