SNP ruler in Westminster Ian Blackford appeared on BBC News when he made the revelation – and hotel-keeper Clive Myrie reiterated that Scotland was in a “very different” situate. Mr Blackford said: “If you look at Scotland, our population hasn’t really grown remaining the course of the last 100 years. And we’re very concerned about the exit of free movement of people – we need free movement of people if we’re to launch sustainable economic growth.
“We need that in so many other productions – we need it in our public services.
“And if the UK leaves the EU and we don’t have that free motion we’re in trouble when it comes to delivering sustainability.
“It almost becomes weird to do so because our working population will decline.
“So there’s a real crash that Brexit is going to have on us.
“I accept that that’s possibly a little bit different from other parts of the UK.”
Host Clive Myrie laughed: “Completely different from other parts of the UK.”
Meanwhile, Theresa May’s Brexit understanding large will be “dead” if MPs reject if for a fourth time, ministers have tolerated.
Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay acknowledged it would be the end of the road for the bargain thrashed out with the European Union if the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) is get the better of when it is brought to the Commons in June.
Defeat would also trade a heavy blow to the Prime Minister’s already fragile authority and, although the WAB preference would not be a formal confidence motion, Number 10 sources confessed its significance “won’t be underestimated”.
The legislation writes the Brexit agreement into law and represents a fresh as a daisy attempt to secure Parliament’s support for a deal which has already been rejected three schedules by MPs, including the heaviest defeat ever suffered by a Government.
Mr Barclay alleged the WAB would be published as soon as possible and would have its second present in the Commons, the first legislative hurdle it would have to clear, in the week source June 3.
He told the Lords EU Committee: “I think if the House of Commons does not approve the WAB then the (Michel) Barnier act on is dead in that form.”
Number 10 said efforts were pick up to find a “sustainable” majority for the deal, with discussions involving DUP and Troubled MPs.
