Two-question ballot illogical, says Labour peer Lord Foulkes

A former Scotland Office minister is calling for a "double referendum" to determine Scotland's constitutional future.

Labour peer Lord Foulkes has said there should be two separate votes - the first one to decide on independence.

If that vote was defeated, a second ballot could be held on further devolution.

Lord Foulkes told BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme: "Well there has been a lot of discussion about two questions at the one time on the one ballot paper or two ballot papers making the decision simultaneously, and that would confuse things."
