Responding to confirmation from Police Scotland of plans to put 360 officers on standby to deal with incidents that may arise because of Brexit, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur said:
"We are now less than 50 days away from a no-deal Brexit.
“Liberal Democrats have consistently advised that Brexit will leave us less safe and less secure. The fact that officers are being put on standby to deal with Brexit related incidents just shows that this whole saga has been an unmitigated disaster.
“People didn’t vote to be less safe. It’s time for a People’s Vote with the option to remain in the EU.”
