Speaking after Parliament voted down the Prime Minister's Brexit deal, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:

"This is a historic and devastating defeat for the Prime Minister. Her deal is in tatters. So is her credibility.

"With public services at risk, what happens next is too important to be left to an utterly divided Conservative party.

"When she returns to Parliament, the Prime Minister should announce plans for a People's Vote, giving power back to the British public to decide how they want to proceed."
