John Lamont MP's response to First Minister's comments on Brexit

Responding to the First Minister’s comments on Brexit today, Scottish Conservative MP John Lamont said;

“Yet again, Nicola Sturgeon would rather focus on indyref2 than deal with the crises she has created in both health and education. 

“Nicola Sturgeon has no interest in securing a successful Brexit deal, all she cares about is a second independence referendum.

'She has created a damaging distraction when her priority should be working with the UK Government to get the right deal for Scotland and the whole of the UK.

'She should take the threat of a second independence referendum off the table. Instead she has put it front and centre - which is the last thing Scots want or need.”
