Scotland's First Minister, and leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) Nicola Sturgeon.

"I will set out what I think the next steps are when we are at the end of this phase of negotiations", she told Marr.

She added that if Scotland voted to remain in any new Brexit referendum, it should not be forced to leave with rest of UK.

The MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber will say: "Time and time again, the SNP and others have fought to ensure that Scotland's remain vote is respected in the European Union negotiations - but the Tory cabinet is completely in thrall to the hardline Brexiteers who could not care less about jobs, living standards and public services in Scotland".

The fervour of Sturgeon's members to cut loose from the United Kingdom will be clear at the SNP conference, and tens of thousands marched through the streets of Edinburgh on Saturday to show support for Scottish independence.

Brexit is a "democratic outrage" which is boosting the case for Scottish independence, the SNP's Westminster leader is to tell conference delegates.

"But it's important to get the timing right, not just for self-interested reasons".
