Commenting after the Prime Minister's speech on Brexit, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"This afternoons speech has confirmed that the Conservatives are hell bent on a hard Brexit regardless of what the impact will be on millions of people through higher prices and greater instability.

"Withdrawing from the Single Market and the Customs Union is not in our country's interest nor was it what people voted for on the 23rd June. The Tories are turning Brexit into a democratic stitch up and this afternoon's speech shows how vital it is that the public be given a say in a Brexit Deal Referendum.

"The Liberal Democrats stand for Scotland in the UK and the UK in Europe."
