We, the people of Scotland who subscribe to this Engagement, declare our belief that reform in the constitution of our country is necessary to secure good government in accordance with our Scottish traditions and to promote the social and economic welfare of our nation.

We affirm that the desire for such reform is both deep and widespread through the whole community, transcending all political differences and sectional interests, and we undertake to continue united in purpose for its achievement.

With that end in view we solemnly enter into this Covenant whereby we pledge ourselves to do everything in our power to secure for Scotland a Parliament complete with all powers of State and with full legislative authority in Scottish affairs, both domestic and international, and hereby call for the Treaty of Union to be ended forthwith.
