The Orkney Islands are considering declaring independence from the UK and Scotland following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

The motion to investigate “greater autonomy or self-determination” for the islands, located north of Scotland, was passed by 13 of the Islands Council’s 21 members.

It requires the council’s chief executive to draw up a report considering “whether the people of Orkney could exercise self-determination if faced with further national or international constitutional changes. Or indeed to decide if more autonomy might be beneficial for the wellbeing of Orkney.”

The motion also calls on the chief executive to investigate what the requirements are to secure greater autonomy from both the UK and Scottish governments.

Independent councillor Graham Sinclair, who helped draft the motion, said: “I think the islands are more significantly different – both historically and culturally – from the rest of the country.

It is a very preliminary shot. It is to consider whether there is the possibility of constitutional changes.

I don’t have any preconceptions about where it might lead. My motion was accepted without anyone speaking against it and we are a council of independent councillors,” he added.
