Speaking after news that the Scottish Parliament could be recalled on Thursday to consider a Legislative Consent Motion to enable Brexit legislation, the leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats Willie Rennie said:

"Scottish Liberal Democrats will vote against Brexit again on Thursday.

"The vote on Thursday in the Scottish Parliament will be another signal that the Brexit deal is a bad idea.

"It is time for Scottish Conservatives to show some backbone. They need to vote against a Brexit deal that puts an internal border in the Irish Sea. It breaks the Conservatives' promise and risks the future of the United Kingdom.

"Brexit is bad for the UK."
