FIRST Minister Humza Yousaf "set out his stall" to SNP members at the party's independence convention at the weekend.

In a speech well received by those in the room, Yousaf said that at the next General Election the party's manifesto will state on the first line that a vote for the SNP is "a vote for Scottish independence".
