First minister Nicola Sturgeon will be under intense pressure to call off her plans for a second independence referendum at Holyrood this week, after losing seats in the general election.
And north-east MSP Lewis Macdonald, Labour, has led the charge by tabling a question for the First Minister on Thursday.
Mr Macdonald will ask whether work by Scottish Government officials on a second independence referendum will now cease.
He said: “I’m sure everyone wants to know the same thing.
“We shouldn’t have people slaving away over a hot computer when Scotland has spoken against a second independence referendum.”
