Nicola Sturgeon: Scotland may seek separate EU trade deal

Nicola Sturgeon on Marr

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she believes a deal could be reached which would allow Scotland to retain access to the European single market.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, she said the UK leaving the EU need not entail Scotland being excluded from a separate trade arrangement.

“I think that is possible,” she said.

Speaking later, Scottish Secretary David Mundell agreed to look at any specific proposals put forward by the Scottish government.

The first minister said her government was looking at the detail of how a separate trade deal could work, adding: “We will publish proposals over the next few weeks.”
