All quotes by Theresa May on Scottish referendum

Ours is not a marriage of convenience, or a fair-weather friendship, but a true and enduring Union, tested in adversity and found to be true... We are four nations, but at heart we are one people. That solidarity is the essence of our United Kingdom and is the surest safeguard of its future. The devolution of powers across the United Kingdom must not mean we become a looser and weaker Union. We cannot allow our United Kingdom to drift apart. For too long the attitude in Whitehall has been to 'devolve and forget.feedback

As we bring powers and control back to the United Kingdom, we must ensure that right powers sit at the right level to ensure our United Kingdom can operate effectively and in the interests of all of its citizens, including people in Scotland. As I have made clear repeatedly, no decisions currently taken by the Scottish parliament will be removed from them. While the SNP propose that decision-making should remain in Brussels, we will use the opportunity of Brexit to ensure that more decisions are devolved back into the hands of the Scottish people.feedback

We must avoid any unintended consequences for the coherence and integrity of a devolved United Kingdom as a result of our leaving the EU. Ours is not a marriage of convenience, or a fair-weather friendship, but a true and enduring union, tested in adversity and found to be true. The essential common standards which underpin the operation of a single market were provided at the European level.feedback

I think it's wrong to look at this as just a binary issue, as to either you have control of immigration, or you have a good trade deal. I don't see it a as a binary issue. We will, outside the European Union, be able to have control of immigration, and be able to set our rules for people coming to the UK from member states of the European Union. But we also, as part of that Brexit deal, will be working to get the best possible deal in the trading relationship with the European Union.feedback
