Referendums
1 Citizens are asked to determine a question of public importance
2 The result of a referendum is not legally binding on the UK Parliament but it would be difficult for MP's to ignore the publics opinion.
3 Referendums are always a 'yes' or 'no' question.
4 Some referendums can have multiple questions. The Scottish devolution election asked a question regarding devolution of powers to Scotland and another on whether they should collect their own taxes.
5 Parliament will decide if and when a referendum will be held, as well as what the question of the referendum will be and how it will be worded
