Ruth Davidson has accused the SNP of acting against the wishes

of the majority of Scots with its plans for another

referendum on independence. Speaking to the BBC,

:00:15.:00:18.

Ms Davidson said the independence campaign was not about Brexit -

:00:19.:00:20.

claiming the nationalists are utilising whatever is at hand

:00:21.:00:22.

to try and end the union. But Nicola Sturgeon says her

over a second referendum, Ruth After a week dominated by the debate

Davidson took to the airwaves with her message, Scotland does not want

another vote. The SNP is not Scotland and they are acting against

the majority wishes in their proposition on Monday. Scottish

:00:49.:00:53.

Government ministers disagree. Brexit has changed the game they

:00:54.:00:57.

say. The Scottish Conservative leader is not buying it. This is not

:00:58.:01:03.

abrupt Brexit. This is about using whatever is at hand to break the UK.

:01:04.:01:09.

A breakfast pitch from the First Minister. She sees this differently.

:01:10.:01:13.

Nicola Sturgeon says this is about choice. She wants it to be a

:01:14.:01:21.

European future. An independent Scotland in your mind, would you be

:01:22.:01:26.

looking to join the EU! I do believe it is right for Scotland to remain

:01:27.:01:30.

within that European family of nations. Not won but two pitches. Ms

:01:31.:01:39.

Sturgeon is adamant a referendum must be before Brexit but she had

:01:40.:01:44.

this message for the Prime Minister on timing. It is for her to say what

:01:45.:01:49.

timescale is appropriate and then I am happy to have that discussion.

:01:50.:01:54.

Both sides are holding firm. The Scottish parliament will vote during

:01:55.:01:56.

Both sides are holding firm. The the week and Nicola Sturgeon hopes

:01:57.:02:01.

that will put more pressure on the UK Government, but with little sign

:02:02.:02:05.

of a breakthrough, this debate will continue potentially for some time.

:02:06.:02:08.

Scotland's food and drink exports rose to a record

:02:09.:02:10.

?5.5 billion last year, according to new figures

:02:11.:02:12.

Whisky has made a small recovery from a previous dip

:02:13.:02:15.

Business is brisk at this Edinburgh market. As well as selling here,

:02:16.:02:31.

many producers are trying to tap into bigger markets. Exports rose by

:02:32.:02:38.

8% overall last year. We have cold smoke as well as hot smoke. The

:02:39.:02:43.

seafood sector surged with sales to Asia. People are looking for premium

:02:44.:02:49.

products with a strong story behind it. Whiskey makes up most of our

:02:50.:02:55.

food and drink exports. Its figures are up 4%. Food exports have doubled

:02:56.:03:01.

in a decade. Smaller producers are keen Scotland's retains diversity in

:03:02.:03:10.

its products. All food related agencies need to enable us and the

:03:11.:03:16.

curtailment is causing an issue where food producers have been

:03:17.:03:19.

curtailed in what they are doing. We want the whole food industry and

policy to see if from the same hymn sheet. Growing sales are welcome but

:03:27.:03:32.

there is concern about Brexit. Over ?2 billion of Scottish food and

there is concern about Brexit. Over exports went to Europe last year.

:03:35.:03:40.

That compares to 8.5 billion to the rest of the UK. Later this week,

plants will be unveiled to make food and drink Scotland's biggest

to take the Premiership title again VT? after beating Dundee 2-1

:03:51.:03:53.

at Dens Park this afternoon. Jozo Simunovic got the first

:03:54.:03:55.

just before half time. And this Stuart Armstrong header

:03:56.:03:58.

from a James Forrest cross gave the visitors

:03:59.:04:01.

a seemingly unassailable lead. A spectacular solo effort

:04:02.:04:05.

from the Moroccan striker Faissal El Bakhtaoui kept Dundee's

shortage of skill on display. People come here with different stories but

:04:41.:04:45.

they find fitness and friendship. It has done wonders for my confidence.

:04:46.:04:50.

It has got me into a sport I would never have tried before and I would

:04:51.:04:56.

like to get more ladies involved. Rebecca is the only female player in

:04:57.:04:59.

the Great Britain amputee football league. Over the last year I got

:05:00.:05:04.

involved with this team. The disability is not a bad area in a

:05:05.:05:12.

sport like this. Amputee football is played all over the world. The goal

:05:13.:05:18.

is to get other teams involved and create a vibrant league here.

:05:19.:05:22.

Balance and strength are key. Brian lost his leg to cancer aged ten but

:05:23.:05:26.

has now rediscovered a love for the game. I wish now looking back I had

not let it stop me and I could have done more. That is what I want to

give to youngsters, don't let anything stop you, go for it.

like overnight and for the start of the week.

:05:44.:05:45.

Not looking too bad. Initially we saw some lovely sunshine today.

:05:46.:06:00.

Lovely blue skies and blue sea. Over the next few days it is set to turn

:06:01.:06:06.

colder and showery. A quiet night tonight with clear skies, showers

spells of rain. It has been quite breezy today but winds strengthen,

touching gale force along the West Coast and temperatures of around

:06:25.:06:28.

five Celsius. Tomorrow starts off on a cloudy, windy node. Outbreaks of

Ireland, the North of England, a weather front bringing outbreaks of

:06:52.:06:56.

rain for Wales, the Midlands. The weather front becoming confined to

the south-east. I think it will be quite a breezy day for the self.

Noticeably colder back in Scotland. Today we saw 14 Celsius and by
