The Prime Minister claims Scotland will be leaving the European Union

:00:17.:00:20.

regardless of whether or not we vote for independence.

:00:21.:00:22.

Theresa May also told SNP MPs that constitutional game-playing should

:00:23.:00:24.

not be allowed to break the deep bonds of the UK

:00:25.:00:28.

after the SNPs Deputy leader Angus Robertson told Theresa May

:00:29.:00:32.

she was breaking promises to secure a UK-wide agreement on Brexit.

:00:33.:00:38.

Our political correspondent Nick Eardley reports

:00:39.:00:40.

Theresa May does not want another referendum

:00:41.:00:48.

to happen but at some stage the Prime Minister has to decide

:00:49.:00:52.

In the Commons she was asked with reference to the

:00:53.:00:58.

SNP manifesto pledge if it could hold one

:00:59.:01:04.

Though she agreed that the Government should

:01:05.:01:09.

stick to its manifesto promises and, if so,

:01:10.:01:13.

In response, a hint perhaps on what might influence

:01:14.:01:18.

I of course recognise there was a vote that took place for

:01:19.:01:29.

the Scottish parliament and the First Minister

:01:30.:01:31.

was returned as First Minister in a minority government.

:01:32.:01:33.

Since September 2014, the Scottish people

:01:34.:01:35.

vote on whether or not they wish to remain in the United Kingdom.

:01:36.:01:41.

They chose that Scotland should remain

:01:42.:01:43.

The SNP wants you to know they have tried to

:01:44.:01:49.

find a middle ground but they say the UK Government is not listening.

:01:50.:01:52.

If she is not prepared to negotiate on behalf of the Scottish

:01:53.:02:00.

Government and secure membership of the single market, people in

:02:01.:02:04.

The PM insists her deal will work for

:02:05.:02:12.

the whole UK and says the union is more important than the EU.

:02:13.:02:17.

We have been one country for over 300 years.

:02:18.:02:21.

We have fought together, worked together, achieved together.

:02:22.:02:27.

And constitutional gameplaying must not

:02:28.:02:30.

be allowed to break the deep bonds of our shared history and our future

:02:31.:02:33.

There will be more conversations before Article 50 is

:02:34.:02:52.

triggered but it seems unlikely will be a deal

:02:53.:02:54.

which meets the demands of

:02:55.:02:56.

The most important question that remains

:02:57.:02:58.

tonight is will Theresa May allow another independence vote?

:02:59.:03:00.

Unlikely we'll get a more substantive answer

:03:01.:03:02.

on that until after Holyrood debate sit next week.

:03:03.:03:04.

As seasons change in Westminster, we will wait to see on

:03:05.:03:07.

Meanwhile, Scottish Government ministers have told BBC Scotland

:03:08.:03:12.

that they remain committed to full independent membership

:03:13.:03:14.

But they acknowledged that the position would only be

:03:15.:03:18.

completely finalised in time for the planned referendum.

:03:19.:03:21.

The comments follow an academic survey which indicated

:03:22.:03:23.

support for independence is at a record high.

:03:24.:03:26.

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.

:03:27.:03:31.

For Scotland, the campaign continues, and the dream shall never

:03:32.:03:34.

And for the SNP, it never has, although for the rivals that is a

:03:35.:03:42.

The latest academic survey suggests independence is backed by 46%,

:03:43.:03:47.

Devolution attracts 42% while just 8% want no parliament at all.

:03:48.:03:56.

Among the options on the EU, 25% would

:03:57.:04:01.

quit while 42% want to cut be you's our.

:04:02.:04:05.

It might be hard to win more converts to independence with a

:04:06.:04:08.

You'll agree if we are, and if it is going to be based

:04:09.:04:16.

on somehow trying to get Scotland back into the European Union,

:04:17.:04:19.

today's evidence shows it will be a more difficult argument for the

:04:20.:04:29.

First Minister and the SNP to make than we otherwise thought.

:04:30.:04:31.

There is no clarity about staying in Europe.

:04:32.:04:34.

If Scotland were on their own, stuff would get done

:04:35.:04:44.

and we would not get pushed to one side.

:04:45.:04:46.

I find the whole thing is like the gramophone record.

:04:47.:04:52.

For some, Brexit is a driver for independence and others the

:04:53.:04:56.

What is being proposed at the moment about leaving the UK is

:04:57.:05:02.

A lot more has changed since the last referendum.

:05:03.:05:13.

Just as the idea of leaving the European Union.

:05:14.:05:17.

And there should, I think, be little doubt about this.

:05:18.:05:22.

Does that explain why Nicola Sturgeon noted the final policy

:05:23.:05:24.

position on Europe would depend on prevailing circumstances to be

:05:25.:05:27.

absolutely clear full membership remains SNP policy for the big

:05:28.:05:42.

Scotland has been taken out of the EU, might

:05:43.:05:44.

the initial focus be upon

:05:45.:05:46.

The single market membership is really

:05:47.:05:48.

Exports depend on it, jobs depend on it.

:05:49.:05:51.

Respectable EU nationals and Scottish jobs depending on them, we

:05:52.:05:53.

The problem is we have no clarity from the

:05:54.:05:58.

Brexit position from the United Kingdom government.

:05:59.:06:00.

Just now it is looking worrying indeed.

:06:01.:06:08.

If it is a running jump of a hard Brexit cliff said that is good

:06:09.:06:12.

It is about having a Scottish seat around the table to fix it.

:06:13.:06:18.

That is what we can do with independence.

:06:19.:06:20.

In the 2014 referendum, 16 and 17-year-olds had a vote and they

:06:21.:06:23.

were included in the survey for the first time with the young

:06:24.:06:26.

Scotland's choice if and when it arises again.

:06:27.:06:37.

Five of the six families, promised an investigation

:06:38.:06:40.

following the deaths of their babies, have been excluded

:06:41.:06:42.

The Health Secretary ordered the review

:06:43.:06:46.

following the unnecessary deaths of six babies at Crosshouse

:06:47.:06:49.

hospital in Ayrshire, in the past nine years.

:06:50.:06:54.

The review team says it's offered an open invitation

:06:55.:06:57.

But the BBC has learned it will only formally look at cases that happened

:06:58.:07:02.

The Government ordered a review into six baby death

:07:03.:07:16.

The six families, five have been excluded from the review.

:07:17.:07:27.

Some have asked that we do not identify them.

:07:28.:07:31.

Babies A, B and C will not be included.

:07:32.:07:42.

Elise who died in 2009 and Campbell who died during

:07:43.:07:44.

childbirth in 2012 will also be excluded

:07:45.:07:46.

for the Lucas Morton is the

:07:47.:07:47.

only case from the original six who will definitely be included.

:07:48.:07:50.

He died during childbirth in November, 2015.

:07:51.:07:52.

Rebecca Pringle who was not part of the original six was born in

:07:53.:07:55.

She won't be included in the review either.

:07:56.:08:02.

Rebecca was born at the hospital five years ago.

:08:03.:08:07.

Her mother was told she would not survive.

:08:08.:08:09.

They told me that Rebecca would be transferred to

:08:10.:08:13.

At the hospital they told me Rebecca would die on

:08:14.:08:17.

Christmas Eve at ten o'clock in the morning

:08:18.:08:19.

She has cerebral palsy and cannot walk or talk and finds Aquarians

:08:20.:08:39.

I find it disgusting it takes families to dying children to

:08:40.:08:42.

Dawn says her life was split apart when her daughter died in 2009.

:08:43.:08:52.

We thought that this is finally a chance.

:08:53.:08:55.

It is absolutely devastating to find out there is a cut-off

:08:56.:08:57.

It is almost like our stories are not valued and the experiences

:08:58.:09:02.

we have been through, they mean nothing.

:09:03.:09:07.

The reason that December 2013 was chosen by the health care

:09:08.:09:12.

Scotland as the date was many of the cases

:09:13.:09:14.

had already been looked at

:09:15.:09:16.

They have spoken to those families and any

:09:17.:09:21.

issues emerging from those discussions, even if those cases

:09:22.:09:24.

that predated December 2013 should be part of their report.

:09:25.:09:35.

Families like Rebecca's have always

:09:36.:09:36.

They want to ensure mistakes are not needed.

:09:37.:09:44.

The review is due to be published shortly.

:09:45.:09:47.

If the family do not get answers, some believe the

:09:48.:09:51.

The murderer of teenager Paige Doherty is to have his

:09:52.:09:55.

deli business dissolved and its assets seized.

:09:56.:09:57.

32-year-old John Leathem stabbed the 15-year-old 61 times

:09:58.:09:58.

at his shop in Clydebank before dumping her body.

:09:59.:10:02.

Companies House has now given two months notice that his business

:10:03.:10:04.

will be struck off the register and its assets handed to the Crown.

:10:05.:10:11.

The driver of the lorry which overturned on the Forth Road Bridge,

:10:12.:10:13.

in January, blocking it for 19 hours,

:10:14.:10:15.

has been fined ?1,000, banned from driving for two

:10:16.:10:18.

years and ordered to re-sit the driving test.

:10:19.:10:23.

Aleksander Nyemyets pleaded guilty to dangerous driving by failing

:10:24.:10:26.

to comply with prominent road signs showing the bridge was closed

:10:27.:10:31.

to high-sided vehicles due to strong winds.

:10:32.:10:35.

Meanwhile a lorry driver whose vehicle overturned on the

:10:36.:10:37.

Forth Road Bridge yesterday, causing major traffic

:10:38.:10:40.

The 56-year-old denied dangerous driving by failing

:10:41.:10:45.

to comply with road signs prohibiting high sided vehicles.

:10:46.:10:48.

He was granted bail and his trial was set for June.

:10:49.:10:52.

A revamp of Aberdeen's Union Terrace Gardens has been approved.

:10:53.:10:55.

The project will see better access to the sunken park

:10:56.:10:58.

in the city centre as well as a cafe and gallery space.

:10:59.:11:02.

In 2012 a ?120 million proposal from businessman Sir Ian Wood

:11:03.:11:06.

to raise the level of the park was scrapped by the council.

:11:07.:11:12.

Well, it's over to Christopher now with the weather outlook

:11:13.:11:14.

Good evening. It is pretty mild and cloudy tonight. Maybe some fog

:11:15.:11:32.

around the coast. We are between the warm front and cold fronts. Breezy

:11:33.:11:36.

around the West Coast and that is how things start tomorrow. Fairly

:11:37.:11:39.

cloudy conditions and some spots of rain. At eight o'clock, it is

:11:40.:11:47.

reasonably dry through the central belt and some brightness towards the

:11:48.:11:52.

Borders. Temperatures around 10 Celsius. The warmest part of the day

:11:53.:11:57.

tomorrow at 8am. Further north and north-west, outbreaks of rain

:11:58.:12:02.

continuing. Cloudy and breezy here. As we had through the course of the

:12:03.:12:06.

morning, that rain will start to edge its way south Andy Swiss. We

:12:07.:12:09.

will see a spell of weather for a time and turning heavy. Quite a

:12:10.:12:14.

soggy start of the afternoon. The Midlands and the south-east,

:12:15.:12:29.

low teens. Behind that rain, telling low teens. Behind that rain, telling

:12:30.:12:39.

-- turning quite cold. The temperatures fall away to four

:12:40.:12:42.

Celsius. It will feel really quite cool. Overnight, further showers and

:12:43.:12:48.

some of them wintry and a further spell of rain as we head towards

:12:49.:12:54.

Friday. For the end of the week, pretty wet and some snow across the

:12:55.:12:59.

high ground. Reasonably dry but it will be called for all in the

:13:00.:13:05.

central belt. Looking ahead towards the weekend, the unsettled theme

:13:06.:13:10.

continues. There will be some rain and wind at times to stop Sunday,

:13:11.:13:15.

that is the case of showers the most. -- foremost. Our next update

:13:16.:13:25.

is during breakfast from 6:25am. From everybody here in Glasgow, good

:13:26.:13:26.

night.
