Brexit: SNP calls on government to provide support to Scotland

The Scottish Government has warned new changes to customs and exports following Brexit could cost the UK up to £7billion each year, while Scotland's Constitution Secretary Mike Russell has predicted the country's GDP could plummet by as much as six percent over the next decade. The SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford has said Boris Johnson's Conservative Party "must apologise to Scottish businesses and pay compensation to Scotland for the long-term damage they are doing to our economy - costing us billions in lost trade and growth". He also described Brexit as "an unnecessary act of economic vandalism, which has been inflicted against Scotland's will".
