Commenting on a new report from professional services firm EY, which warns that “A switch to World Trade Organisation (WTO) trading rules would have immediate real and adverse impacts on Scottish exports", Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“The Scottish economy is teetering in the balance. Growth is already looking disappointing as Boris Johnson’s do or die rhetoric puts firms on edge.
“Boris Johnson is not just inching towards the cliff edge, he’s sprinting towards it.
“Liberal Democrats recognise that it is the interests of businesses across the UK to take a no deal Brexit off the table and give the public a say on what happens next.”
