In response to an press statement from the Secretary of State for Scotland in support of Theresa May's Brexit deal, the leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats Willie Rennie MSP said:
"David Mundell's proposal will damage the UK economy according to the Treasury's own analysis.
"The final decision is too important to be left to an utterly divided Conservative party. That's why it needs to be put to a people's vote across the UK.
"David Mundell's position is the exact opposite of what his constituents voted for and he should be ashamed how feeble he is."
