The SNP has consistently voted against Brexit. When it returned under the new Tory government, we did exactly the same again - voting against the miserable Withdrawal Agreement bill which will be terrible for the people of Scotland.

This follows allegations of dark money from the Constitutional Research Council, which is linked to the Scottish Tories, to the DUP. As usual, no straight answer.   Cabinet Office Questions 28th March 2018 ...
