May said there was no appetite for a second Scottish independence referendum and that the case was dismissed in September 2014, when 55 per cent of Scots voted to stay in Britain.
As the prime minister prepares to head north to speak at the Scottish Conservative conference this week, it has emerged that the SNP government raised the issue of a second referendum at a private meeting with her administration on Wednesday.
The devolved Scottish government published a report in December that set out ways for Scotland to maintain its current position in the single market - which guarantees the free movement of goods, services and people within the bloc - even if the rest of the United Kingdom leaves.
She accused Sturgeon of "twisting the truth" and "playing politics" at the expense both of the United Kingdom and the Scottish people.
After last June's referendum, which saw Britain vote to quit the EU, Nicola Sturgeon's party has become increasingly vocal about the need for a new ballot on independence.
Speaking to talkRADIO, he said: "Theresa May pays no attention whatsoever to Scottish politics, but we know she's anxious about the idea of independence". She also cited one example that concerns Scotland.
Speaking on the Good Morning Scotland programme she said: "You've got a nationalist Government, hell-bent on breaking us up, they told us it was a once in a generation decision".
Angus Robertson, the SNP depute leader, argued the Scottish Government has a "cast-iron democratic mandate" for another vote.
Both sides committed war crimes in Syrian conflict Last month, the IS-affiliated militants captured several villages and a large town from Syrian rebels in the Daraa countryside. The findings are based on 291 interviews with victims and witnesses, as well as forensic evidence and satellite imagery.
"I am confident about the future of our United Kingdom and optimistic about what we can achieve together as a country".
May also made a promise about decisions made by the Scottish parliament.
This is while, Scottish voters overwhelmingly voted in last year's European Union referendum to remain a part of the 28-member bloc.
In response to Tom Paul's comments (Letters, February 16) regarding the Brexit process, I would like to say that although the European Union referendum was a national vote, the four parts of the United Kingdom voted differently and three of those have devolved governments.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has warned the pro-independence Scottish government that "politics is not a game".
"Given that this falls well short of what Scotland actually voted for. these proposals represent significant movement and a substantial concession on our part".
The SNP accused May of hypocrisy, for criticising Scottish demands for independence while seeking a "hard Brexit". A day later, a spokeswoman for May said that the United Kingdom government did not see any changes in public opinion that could serve as a reason for holding the second referendum on Scottish independence.
