Minister raises concerns over lack of engagement by UK Government.

The process for post-Brexit planning needs to change so that the position of the Scottish Government - particularly in areas that directly affect devolution  - is properly represented according to the Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe.

In a letter to the UK Government, Michael Russell has asked for the change in process to be made, setting out concerns over the lack of engagement on documents covering devolved areas such as science and innovation and areas that impact significantly on Scotland, such as future immigration and customs arrangements.
