That's all from me, stay with us on BBC One -

:00:00.:00:08.

The Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has accused the SNP

:00:09.:00:12.

of acting against the wishes of the majority of Scots

:00:13.:00:15.

with plans for another referendum on independence.

:00:16.:00:18.

Nicola Sturgeon says it's her intention to give

:00:19.:00:20.

Our political correspondent, Nick Eardley reports.

:00:21.:00:25.

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

:00:26.:00:28.

Ruth Davidson took to the airwaves with her message, Scotland does

:00:29.:00:33.

The SNP is not Scotland and they are acting

:00:34.:00:38.

against the majority wishes in their proposition on Monday.

:00:39.:00:44.

Scottish Government ministers disagree.

:00:45.:00:48.

Brexit has changed the game, they say.

:00:49.:00:50.

The Scottish Conservative leader is not buying it.

:00:51.:00:53.

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

:00:54.:01:05.

A breakfast pitch from the First Minister.

:01:06.:01:06.

Nicola Sturgeon says this is about choice.

:01:07.:01:13.

She wants it to be a European future.

:01:14.:01:15.

An independent Scotland in your mind, would you be

:01:16.:01:18.

I do believe it is right for Scotland to remain within that

:01:19.:01:25.

Not instead of trading across the UK but in addition to that.

:01:26.:01:38.

Ms Sturgeon is adamant a referendum must be before Brexit

:01:39.:01:41.

but she had this message for the Prime Minister on timing.

:01:42.:01:44.

It is for her to say what timescale is appropriate and then I am happy

:01:45.:01:47.

The Scottish parliament will vote during the week and Nicola Sturgeon

:01:48.:01:54.

hopes that will put more pressure on the UK Government,

:01:55.:01:56.

but with little sign of a breakthrough, this debate

:01:57.:01:59.

will continue potentially for some time.

:02:00.:02:05.

Scotland's food and drink exports rose to a record

:02:06.:02:07.

?5.5 billion last year, according to new figures

:02:08.:02:10.

Business is brisk at this Edinburgh market.

:02:11.:02:19.

As well as selling here, many producers are trying to tap

:02:20.:02:22.

Exports rose by 8% overall last year.

:02:23.:02:28.

We have cold smoked as well as hot smoked.

:02:29.:02:31.

The seafood sector surged with sales to Asia.

:02:32.:02:42.

Scotland's brand is increasing year-on-year.

:02:43.:02:45.

People are looking for premium products

:02:46.:02:46.

Whiskey makes up most of our food and drink exports.

:02:47.:02:50.

Food exports have doubled in a decade.

:02:51.:02:53.

Smaller producers are keen Scotland retains diversity in its products.

:02:54.:02:57.

All food related agencies need to enable us and the curtailment

:02:58.:03:03.

is causing an issue where food producers have been curtailed

:03:04.:03:09.

We want the whole food industry and policy to sing

:03:10.:03:16.

Growing sales are welcome but there is concern about Brexit.

:03:17.:03:23.

Over ?2 billion of Scottish food and exports went

:03:24.:03:26.

That compares to 8.5 billion to the rest of the UK.

:03:27.:03:34.

Later this week, plans will be unveiled to make food and drink

:03:35.:03:37.

One more win will see Celtic take the Premiership title again,

after beating Dundee 2-1 at Dens Park.

:03:48.:03:50.

Goals from Jozo Simunovic and Stuart Armstrong

:03:51.:03:52.

extended their unbeaten domestic run to 36 matches.

:03:53.:03:58.

Now before we go, let's get the forecast for tonight

:03:59.:04:00.

and the start of the week from Judith.

:04:01.:04:07.

All change as we head through the course of tonight. Rain on the cards

:04:08.:04:15.

with this weather front bringing outbreaks of rain and windy

:04:16.:04:19.

conditions. Tomorrow the winds introduce a showery regime. It will

:04:20.:04:26.

be a cloudy start with that rain around with gales along the West

:04:27.:04:32.

Coast. Windy everywhere although the rain clears away quite quickly and

:04:33.:04:37.

then we're into those blustery showers feeding across the country.

:04:38.:04:44.

The showers turned to snow over the hills, few showers over eastern

:04:45.:04:47.

Scotland where we will see the best of the sunshine. As far as the rest

:04:48.:04:53.

of the week is concerned, it does turn colder and it will be showery
