Responding to the news that the UK Government has decided to legally challenge the withdrawal bills passed by the Scottish and Welsh parliaments, Scottish Liberal Democrat Europe spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP said:

"British businesses and citizens deserve legal certainty and assurances about how they can move forward after exit day. In all this jostling for power and attention the UK and the Scottish Governments have failed to reach a compromise and left the British economy in the lurch.

"Throughout this process I have stressed the importance of co-operation and collaboration between the Scottish and UK governments. This should all have been signed, sealed and delivered in the Commons long ago, before it was allowed to descend into a battle of wills.

"We need a settlement that works for businesses and people across the UK, something both governments have so far failed to achieve."
