Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has called for new tax and welfare powers to be devolved to Scotland as a 'priority'.
Ms Sturgeon told the BBC such powers would allow the Scottish government to grow the economy. She added that she had spoken 'briefly' to Prime Minister David Cameron but more discussions were required. Sturgeon also said her party now provided the main opposition at Westminster.
Labour, with 232 MPs, are the official opposition but Ms Sturgeon claimed her party, which gained 50 MPs on Thursday, was the one putting pressure on Cameron’s government.
