Responding to Richard Leonard's speech to Labour party activists today, Scottish Liberal Democrat MSP Tavish Scott said:

"Richard Leonard is right to say that that an independent Scotland would have less money to spend on public services but he's silent on his own party's collaboration with the Tories over Brexit.

"A hard Brexit will cost every Scot thousands of pounds a year and billions in lost tax revenue. If Richard Leonard is serious abour preserving public services he should listen to the overwhelming majority of Labour party members and push for a referendum on the final deal and an exit from Brexit."
