Commenting on today's vote to prevent a Conservative Prime Minister proroguing parliament, Liberal Democrat Scottish Affairs spokesperson Jamie Stone MP said:

"These votes were a milestone victory in blocking Boris Johnson from trampling on our democracy.

"No Prime Minister should be able to prorogue Parliament to force something through against Parliament's will and these votes are an important part in stopping Boris Johnson doing this.

"A no deal Brexit would be a disaster for Scotland and must be stopped. The only real way out of this chaos is a People's Vote, with the option to stay in the EU, and the Liberal Democrats will keep fighting as we have done today to make this a reality."
