Almost 60 per cent of those tourism professionals in Scotland who took part in a secret ballot at the Scottish Tourism Alliance’s annual summit earlier this month said they would be voting no to independent. Today this NO to Scottish independence was confirmed by the rest of the Scottish people. Scottish people yesterday voted to remain part of the United Kingdom.
The decision spared Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain a shattering defeat that would have raised questions about his ability to continue in office and diminished his nation’s standing in the world.
Her Majesty The Queen is Head of State of the UK and 15 other Commonwealth realms. The Scottish people will remain to be her subjects.
The ballot was held over two days at the Scottish Tourism Week conference , and attracted around 500 delegates from across the country.
Tourism is one of Scotland’s biggest industries, worth more than £11 billion to the economy each year and supporting around 200,000 jobs.
