The independence referendum's purdah period, which prevents government from announcing new legislation, will begin when Holyrood is still sitting. The plan will form part of the Scottish Independence Referendum Bill, which has cleared a key committee stage. Purdah will start on 21 August 2014, but Holyrood will not go into recess until 23 August. The people of Scotland will vote on their country's future on 18 September next year. They will be asked a straight yes/no question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"<br />
