Originally published by Scottish Liberal Democrats

The SNP, Labour, the Scottish Greens and the Liberal Democrats in the Scottish Parliament have published the text of a single agreed motion for this week's debate at Holyrood opposing the Prime Minister's Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration.

The spokespeople for the four parties (Michael Russell, Neil Findlay, Ross Greer and Tavish Scott) commented:

"This debate will give the Scottish Parliament the opportunity to express its overwhelming opposition to both the Prime Minister's Withdrawal Agreement and a No Deal Brexit, agreeing that a better alternative must be found."

The motion to be debated:

Parliament agrees that both a No Deal outcome and the outcomes arising from the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration setting out the framework for the future relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom as presented to the House of Commons by the Prime Minister would be damaging for Scotland and the nations and regions of the UK as a whole and therefore recommends that they be rejected and that a better alternative be taken forward.
