First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she will seek approval next week for a second referendum on Scottish independence.
She said a new vote should be held between autumn 2018 and spring 2019.
However, Sky sources say Ms Sturgeon had not been convinced about calling for the referendum so soon, fearing it is not yet winnable.
Former first minister Alex Salmond and his supporters are said to have pressured her to act.
Ms Sturgeon, making the announcement in Edinburgh, said she believed people would now choose to break away from the UK in order to stay in the EU.
