The UK Government will reject a request from the Scottish Government for a second referendum on independence.
Scottish Secretary David Mundell said it would not enter into "discussions or negotiations" on a request for the legal power to hold a vote.
It comes after Prime Minister Theresa May said "now is not the time" for another ballot
Mr Mundell , MP Dumfriesshire Clydesdale & Tweeddale, said: "This argument isn't about mandates, it's about holding a referendum on established criteria which were set on in the Edinburgh Agreement.
"That established that a referendum must be legal, fair and decisive.
"The proposal brought forward is not fair, people will not be able to make an informed choice.
"Neither is there public or political support for such a referendum.
"Therefore we will not be entering into discussions or negotiations about a section 30 agreement and any request at this time will be declined."
