LONDON – Prime Minister David Cameron is meeting Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland's first minister and leader of the Scottish National Party, for their first talks since Britain's election.
The two leaders are expected to discuss the transfer of greater governing powers from London to Scotland when they meet later Friday in Scotland.
The pro-independence SNP rocked Britain's political landscape last week when it swept almost all of Scotland's seats in Parliament — 56 of 59 — in the general election.
Sturgeon says those results showed that Scots are keen to see substantially increased powers for the Scottish parliament, including the right to decide the territory's own minimum wage and its business taxes.
Cameron declared immediately after the Conservatives' election victory that he was committed to devolving powers to Scotland as soon as possible.
