Article 50 Statement

29 March 2017 was a landmark day in Parliament after the Prime Minister triggered Article 50 – officially starting the process of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

After over 2 hours of bobbing in the Chamber I was the very last out of 113 MPs called by the speaker to ask Theresa May a question. By this point most ground had already been covered so I asked the Prime Minister how she would have reacted if Donald Tusk had told her “now is not the time”.

This is only the beginning of what will be a long, drawn out process and SNP MPs will be working hard over the next two years to ensure that Scotland’s voice is heard during the Brexit negotiations.
