To ask the Scottish Government how many meetings its ministers have had with the Minister of State for Trade and Investment or Minister of State for Trade since the EU referendum.
Answered by: Michael Russell 30 August 2018
Since the EU Referendum Scottish Ministers have met with the Secretary of State for International Trade, Minister of State for the Department of International Trade and Minister of State for Trade at the Department of International Trade four times.
Throughout our engagement with the UK Government we continue to highlight the real costs of Brexit to our economy and reiterate Scotland’s clear position that membership of the single market and the customs union would be the least damaging future relationship with the European Union.
