A small team of Scots are currently reviewing a draft of a Provisional Constitution for Scotland, which will be available in a form suitable for online consultation later this year.
In response to the political awakening in Scotland and the many changes that have and are occurring recently the Draft Constitution that was written to meet the aspirations prior to 2013 is now being redrafted as a Guide for a Provisional Constitution for Sovereign Scotland.
The redrafted guide will be published online as a CONSULTITIVE document later this year.

We welcome any interested persons who would wish to contribute their opinions.
