    Strand 5: Negotiations on Future Relationship with England, Wales & Northern Ireland

    During the transition, the Scottish civil service shall seek to negotiate with the UK over the equitable distribution of assets and liabilities. While their hierarchical status will no longer be valid, UK appointees and representatives within the Scottish Civil Service may participate, provided they clearly demonstrate good-will and a clear verifiable commitment to use their experience constructively to build the Scottish State.

    UK refusal and/or inability to negotiate in verifiably good faith employing legally watertight enforcement mechanisms for any agreement shall result in the Scottish State not assuming any UK liabilities.

    If no such negotiation occurs, all UK assets within Scottish land and territorial waters shall become publicly owned by the Scottish people, including ministry of defence properties and the ‘Crown Estates’.
