Brexit this week

So much is happening on the Brexit front that it can be difficult to keep up. Here’s a quick run-down of what happened this week.

Corbyn explicitly ruled out Single Market membership. Meanwhile, Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale has supported Single Market membership. And Welsh Labour Leader and First Minister Carwyn Jones has spoken out against Jeremy Corbyn’s position.

And senior Labour figures expressed their concern about Corbyn’s position on freedom of movement.

Scottish and Welsh Ministers met to discuss Brexit, and the UK government’s attack on the hard-won powers of the Scottish Parliament and on the principles of devolution.

Of all UK cities, Aberdeen will be hit hardest by Brexit with the biggest fall in economic output, according to a new report. Edinburgh ranked sixth hardest hit.

Consumers were warned that they face “considerable and unpredictable changes in food prices”.

The Tories are all over the place on immigration as they attempted to row back on their anti-immigration stance.  The SNP will continue to call for a commitment to Single Market membership, including freedom of movement. Find out why that’s so important.

A House of Lords report has warned that any weakening of animal welfare standards in new trade deals could put pressure on UK food producers.

And, another House of Lords report warned of the ‘unacceptable risk’ to people’s safety if European Arrest Warrant (EAW) was not replaced. The EAW allows the extradition of individuals between EU Member States to face prosecution for a crime.

The SNP is committed to protecting jobs, living standards, and our economy. Join the SNP today.
