Commenting on Tuesday evening’s votes, SNP Westminster Leader Ian Blackford MP said:

“By throwing her weight behind an impossible demand from the hard Brexit wing of the Conservative Party the Prime Minister today demonstrated beyond doubt she is now prepared to take Scotland and the UK over the Brexit cliff-edge.

“Theresa May could have worked across parties to protect jobs and living standards but she chose to side with the Brexit extremists in her own party.

“Once again Scotland has been silenced, sidelined and shafted by Westminster, and we are paying a heavy price for a chaotic Tory government that Scotland did not vote for.

"And today the Tories ripped apart the Good Friday agreement, an international treaty the UK had signed up to."
