Scotland voted by 55 to 45% to remain in the UK in the referendum on 18 September of last year.

The Scottish nationalist will make the claim in a speech to mark the first anniversary of the independence referendum, BBC reported.

Earlier Cameron outlined plans to guarantee the permanence of the devolved Scottish Parliament.

He said the referendum result meant that “Scotland’s majority” had spoken and that “more Scots voted to keep our kingdom united than have ever voted for any party in any election in Scottish history”.

He added: “Alex Salmond, Nicola Sturgeon and I signed the Edinburgh Agreement which pledged we would all respect the outcome of last year’s momentous vote.

“We all agreed – as do the Scottish public – that the independence referendum should be a ‘once-in-a-generation’ or a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ event. So, now it is time to move on.”
