SNP’s stunt only silences Scottish MPs

Responding to the SNP's walkout in PMQs today, Liberal Democrat Scottish affairs spokesperson Christine Jardine MP said:

"I am utterly appalled that the SNP abandoned the opportunity to discuss Scotland's future in favour of a stunt. They did nothing but silence themselves and other Scottish MPs.

"Equally, the Scottish Tories have dirt on their hands. Their cowardly move to block amendments on devolution being heard in Parliament got us here. Both the SNP and the Scottish Tories have shown contempt for the people who elected them.

"Only the Liberal Democrats offer a path away from this standoff, which is creating more uncertainty for businesses and people in Scotland. We want the people, not these politicians, to have the final say on the deal and an Exit from Brexit."
