JOINT STATEMENT ON OPPOSITION TO WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT

The SNP, Labour, the Scottish Greens and the Liberal Democrats in the Scottish Parliament have confirmed that they will table a single agreed motion for next week’s debate at Holyrood opposing the Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration setting out the framework for the future relationship between the EU and the UK.
 

Confirming that the Scottish Parliament will be asked to vote on the issue next Wednesday (5th November), the spokespeople for the four parties (Michael Russell, Neil Findlay, Ross Greer and Tavish Scott) said in a joint statement:
 
“We have been in discussion regarding a single motion for the debate next week which would be agreed by the four parties and would represent what we hope will be the overwhelming view of the Scottish Parliament.
 
“We are now confident that we can agree on such a motion which will reject a “No Deal” scenario, recommend rejection of the Prime Minister’s negotiated agreement and point the way towards the alternatives that exist. 
 
“The day after the Prime Minister’s stage-managed visit to Scotland, during which she failed to engage with any politicians or individuals who oppose her proposals, this unique and positive cooperation between four of the five parties at Holyrood indicates Scotland’s strength of feeling on Brexit and the Prime Minister’s untenable position, as well as illustrating the isolation of the Tories on this matter.”
