Growing fears among Scottish small businesses underline the case for full membership of the single market, the SNP has said.

Scottish businesses are amongst the most concerned in the UK about a no deal Brexit, according to the FSB – with the organisation’s Small Business Confidence Index finding growing worries.
An FSB survey also found that 56 per cent of Scottish businesses believe a no transition, no deal Brexit would impact negatively on their business – with only 5 per cent believing it would be positive.
Commenting, SNP MSP Joan McAlpine said:
“This is just the latest warning from businesses about the impact of Brexit – but the UK government seems determined not to listen.
“Theresa May’s reckless approach is dragging us closer to the No Deal cliff edge – all to satisfy the fantasists and hard-Brexiteers in the Tory party.
“The fact remains that, if we’re leaving the EU, the best option is to remain in the customs union and single market, which is around eight times bigger than the UK market alone.
“The clock is ticking on negotiations, and if the Tories fail to heed the warnings from Scottish businesses then they will not be forgiven.”
