S5O-00844: Jamie Greene (West Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 22 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what the impact would be on the economy of a second independence referendum campaign.

Answered by: Keith Brown 29 March 2017

The Scottish Government believes the people of Scotland should be given the right to choose their own future. A choice between the hard Brexit being advocated by the UK Government, and the risk we know that this poses to our economy of around £11 billion a year by 2030 and 80,000 jobs over a decade, and becoming an independent country and having the opportunity to pursue policies designed to grow the economy and invest in public services.
