THE Scottish Government is set to publish its tenth independence white paper focusing on culture after a Yes vote.

Independence Minister Jamie Hepburn revealed details of the latest publication in the Building a New Scotland series, which will be available on Friday morning.

Hepburn gave a hint at the contents of the paper, which will set out how independence could “further support Scotland’s creative economy”.

It comes after ministers released papers on topics ranging from the economy and migration, to an independent Scotland joining the EU.

Ahead of the latest white paper launch, SNP MSP Clare Adamson lodged a Government Initiated Question (GIQ) asking for the date the next paper will be published.

Hepburn said in response: “The Scottish Government continues to deliver on its commitment to build the case for an independent Scotland in the EU, giving people the information they need to make an informed choice about their future, as set out in the recent Programme for Government.

The National:

“I’m pleased to confirm that on 2 February we are publishing ‘Our Culture in an Independent Scotland’.

“This is the tenth paper in the Building a New Scotland series, which focusses on Scotland’s cultural and creative industries, providing detailed proposals on how an independent Scotland would further support Scotland’s creative economy, how an independent Scotland could realise the potential of our culture and creative sectors on the international stage by re-joining the European Union and removing barriers for international performers, how public service broadcasting would be protected with independence, and how Scotland can build on the strength of our screen sector.”

Hepburn added that ministers will look to bring a debate on the issues tackled in the paper in the Holyrood chamber “as soon as possible”.

“The Scottish Government is continuing to prepare further papers in the Building a New Scotland series and these will be published in the coming months,” he added.

Earlier this week, MSPs debated the paper looking at joining the bloc, backing a motion that said Scotland’s future is “best served” in the EU.

Meanwhile, Labour attempted to put forward a motion stating that Scotland’s future would be best served under a Labour government.
