Commenting on the news that Theresa May is to take personal charge of Brexit negotiations, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
"The Prime Minister is finally taking responsibility for her ropey Brexit deal. Unfortunately for her she is now the captain of a ship that seems to be sinking rapidly.
“With ministers now admitting that there may be food and medicine shortages, it is increasingly plain that there is no Brexit deal that is as good as remaining in the EU.
"That’s why momentum is building for a People’s Vote on the final deal and the chance to exit from Brexit."
