Commenting on SPA board papers which reveal that Police Scotland’s total spending in relation to Brexit is over £8m as of 9 September 2019, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:
“This is a mind boggling sum. We know the pressure that Police Scotland are already under and how stretched they are. Not only will Brexit make us less safe if we lose access to international crimefighting resources, it is costing our police service dearly.
“The UK Government need to ensure that none of our public services are missing out as a result of the catastrophic Brexit process.
“Scottish Liberal Democrats are clear: we need an exit from Brexit.”
