HALIFAX, England (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday that now was not the time for another Scottish independence referendum and one should not take place until the Brexit process has played out.

In a list of policy pledges ahead of a June 8 election, May said a new referendum on Scottish independence should not take place without public consent for it.
