VOTERS north of the border don’t believe the UK Government has given an “appropriate amount of consideration” to Scottish concerns, a new poll has found.

The Survation poll, for the SNP, found that only 27% of the public believe the Tories have given “an appropriate amount of consideration” to the views of people in Scotland, with 62% believing they have not.

The survey also also revealed that 60% of Scottish voters would support an extension to the Brexit negotiating process.

SNP MP Stephen Gethins said: “Scottish voters from every political party support the SNP’s call to extend the negotiating period with the EU as Theresa May’s disastrous handling of Brexit negotiations goes from bad to worse.

“A ‘no deal’ or ‘no detail' Brexit simply isn’t acceptable to Scotland, where we voted decisively to remain in the EU – a position that has been completely ignored and disrespected by Westminster at every turn.

“The SNP has argued from day one for a compromise that, after Brexit, the UK should remain in the single market and customs union – which is around eight times bigger than the UK market alone – to protect Scottish jobs and household incomes, and it’s becoming clearer by the day that Theresa May’s extreme approach to Brexit needs to change.”

Meanwhile, ahead of tomorrow’s Joint Ministerial Committee, between Whitehall and the devolved administrations, May’s de-facto deputy, David Lidington called on Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland to pull together with the UK Government “in the national interest".
