It’s right that MSPs are consulted before Article 50 is triggered

Responding to news that Scotland's Lord Advocate is to argue that the consent of the Scottish Parliament should be sought before Article 50 is triggered, Ross Greer MSP, Europe spokesperson for the Scottish Greens, said:

“Scotland voted to Remain, so it’s right that the Scottish Government explores all options. The Westminster Government’s bizarre desire for a hard Brexit, without scrutiny, is putting Scotland’s economy, universities and public services at huge risk. It’s reasonable that MSPs who represent the people of Scotland are consulted before any steps are taken to remove us from Europe against our wishes.”
