Description:
Scotland Forward (styled "Scotland FORward") was a coalition of organisations and individuals who campaigned for a Yes-Yes vote in the devolution referendums of 1997 called by the recently elected Westminster Labour Government. At the time Scotland Forward was established, the Scottish Conservatives were in power at Westminster, who were strongly opposed to Scottish devolution in the main, and who also had declining representation in Scotland. The Scottish Labour Party, Scottish Liberal Democrats, Scottish National Party and the Scottish Green Party lent their support to the campaign, which anticipated a change of government, as well as many others.

When the Labour Party won the General Election of 1997, referendums for Scotland and Wales as an integral part of their platform. Scotland Forward campaigned for a Yes vote on the creating of a parliament, and a Yes vote to it having tax raising powers. Both referendums won "Yes" votes, and a Scottish parliament was duly established.
