Scottish Secretary Alister Jack has said there is an “historic opportunity” for Scotland in Brexit as he affirmed his support for Boris Johnson.
Writing for The Times Scotland, he promised to “help the Prime Minister deliver Brexit”.
Ian Murray, Best for Britain supporter and former Shadow Scottish Secretary, said:
“Brexit does not offer an ‘opportunity’ for Scotland.
“It is a historic threat to our economy, to the Union, and to opportunities for Scots.
“The Scottish Secretary should not be helping the Prime Minister deliver Brexit, he should be standing up for the people of Scotland and fighting a damaging hard Brexit that puts jobs and our country at risk.”
