It comes as Scotland in Union commissioned a poll which suggested the SNP led administration should work closer together with No10 on the COVID-19 response. The Survation poll for the pro-UK campaign group found 56 percent want the two governments to work more closely together on a joint response to the pandemic.
Only 19 percent said they want the administrations to continue working as closely together as they do at the moment, while 16 percent said they want the governments to work less closely together.
The poll of over 1,000 people in Scotland also revealed two-thirds are not satisfied with the way the UK and Scottish governments work together on the issues which impact on their lives, with only 24 percent satisfied.
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said: “Co-operation should be at the heart of devolution, not division.
“This poll shows that a majority of people in Scotland are dissatisfied with the way that our two governments work together, and particularly want the administrations to co-operate more amid the ongoing coronavirus emergency.
“Both governments should put their differences aside and take a leaf out of Joe Biden’s book as he promotes the importance of unity and bringing people together.
“This is the worst possible time to find new ways to divide Scotland, which is why the SNP should abandon its plans for a divisive second independence referendum that would tear communities apart.”
Scottish Secretary Alister Jack had dismissed the prospect of having a second vote on whether Scotland should stay in the UK.
Mr Jack said: “I don’t think we should keep having referendums until they get their own way, it should respect the outcome of the one we had.”

“Throughout the pandemic, the UK Government has worked closely with the devolved administrations and local partners.
“Never has it been more important for Scotland to be part of a strong United Kingdom, with the might of the UK Treasury supporting jobs and businesses in Scotland and all parts of the UK.”
The Scottish Government have been approached for comment.
The Scotland in Union poll questioned 1,071 people between October 28th and November 3rd.
